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.

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,
They're gone but never forgotten abandoned out at sea, some severely beaten by past storms others stuck in misery,
'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,
'If I Had A Son'
I would sit him down and tell him to include God in everything he does first and foremost. I would then remind him how important it is to get a good education. I would tell him there will come a time when he must
When I look at the road from which I came and the bridges I had to cross the mountains I was asked to climb and rivers I swam across,
I'm thrilled with the small things in life and I don't need a lot of notoriety, any thing that I do I do it smooth and quietly,
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,
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,
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,
Believe In Yourself
'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,
you've always filled my cup with everything
whenever it ran empty,
through you, I've had my share of opportunities in life
because you provided aplenty,
you've always made me so happy
