Biography of Bernard Snyder
Writing poetry has always been one of my favorite hobbies. After reading poems early on by the likes of William Shakespeare, Edgar Allan Poe, and Langston Hughes, just to name a few, I became fascinated with the art. I wanted the world to read my material with hopes, they'd find mine entertaining as well. I'm not sure how far I can go with this, but as long as I continue to live, I will always have a reason to write. Hopefully, my love and passion for the art is exemplified in my writing! Please check out my first published book 'A Part Of Me' vol.1, which was published in April 2009 at Amazon.com.

Bernard Snyder Poems
The love songs I used to sing for you now just seem like shattered words, the white doves that followed us along the beaches now seem like ordinary birds,
'Why I Love You'
I love you because you're the other half that makes me whole, when we're apart I feel helpless and out of control,
'Swimming With A Shark'
She tried to warn me right from the start, she said she had a friend that had stolen her heart,
'Behind The Smile'
I've always known she was taken but something about her made me keep trying, I used to flatter her with sweet pleasantries knowing she would read between the lines,
Sometimes we sort through the shattered pieces with hopes of finding something still intact, despite the excruciating pain we went through, we always find ourselves looking back,
'A Lonely Rose'
Something must've happened over time no one seem to ever ask for me, maybe I've lost my significance or the world's going through a catastrophe,
They're gone but never forgotten abandoned out at sea, some severely beaten by past storms others stuck in misery,
</>I've sailed around the world twice
The Wind Beneath My Wings
When my time here on earth expires I won't have any regrets, because by having met you I was finally given the opportunity to know what
They get started by certain people that run their mouths without the facts, they take a story they've overheard and begin to add to it or subtract,
'Hold My Hand'
I just want to say 'thank you', Lord and know that I truly understand, how lost I would've been if you weren't holding my hand,
'Eyes Wide Shut'
I'M The One For You'
I will always stand by your side even if the whole world was against you, I would plant you a garden of roses if I thought it would convince you,
Sometimes we sort through the shattered pieces
with hopes of finding something still intact,
despite the excruciating pain we went through,
we always find ourselves looking back,
too often we allow our hearts to lead us
hoping for a second chance
putting our entire lives on 'hold'
when we should be trying to advance,
we get so 'caught up' thinking of the good times
