There is not much to say. I never wrote a poem in my life until it was suggested by my ex wife that we write a poem to each other. Once I started, I could not stop. All the poems, for now, are about her, my loss of her and my wish for a new beginning and future.
I know many of the poems need work, some a LOT of work, so if you see something you like, or not, please let me know. If ... more »

GJG Elton Poems
I make this solemn promise, to be: your servant, when, you need to reign, your doctor, when you are ill,
Good Morning Sunshine
Sweet loving light, Lost in the darkness, Throughout the night.
Smiles may come And smiles may go, The smile I most miss Was from one long ago.
You're The Only One
You're only the one, I want to love forever. You're only the one That has my heart tethered.
The Prankster Inside
Innocent, yet clever, a prankster was she, a sweet little girl, with a fine pedigree. Before first day of class, she was already scholared, in arts of the prank, yet frequently collared;
Why I Love You So Much
The sparkle in your eyes, The warmth of your skin, Your breath on my neck, All shake me within.
My Sleeping Beauty
In anguish I stare through flowing tears, at photos of you from bygone years, as here I sit, alone, and cry, dreading that soon, I might say goodbye.
Now That Your Love Has Died
What happened to those days we laughed? What happened to those times we cried? What happened to all those plans we made? What caused this great divide?
Beauty throughout, beauty within, Your beauty's unique, and lies deeper than skin. Physically your beauty is stunning,
It's Always Been You
For way to long, it's been only you, The other, she never compared. May I return to you, with empty heart, To the one, my soul who ensnared.
My Soul to Take
Now I lay me down to sleep, With no Neet beside me, I shall weep. If I should die before I wake, It's Neet I want my soul to take.
I Love Her
I loved her before, and I love her again. I love that we talk, and I love that we pen. I love her big grin, and I love her deep eyes. I love all her beauty, and I love that she's wise.
Some nights, sleep eludes me, As I lie there, and toss and turn. She's constantly in my thoughts, And forever in my heart she burns…
The message came in, a total surprise, I've been waiting for something, since June. No one is home, so call me right now, So happy I could jump ‘oer the moon

I make this solemn promise, to be:
your servant, when, you need to reign,
your doctor, when you are ill,
your army, when, you go to war,
a pen, when you need a quill,
your umbrella, when life rains down on you,
your rock, when you get weary,
your shield, for when you need defense,
your spirit, when you are dreary,
your pillow, when, you need to rest,
an ear, when no one listens,
your hero, when, you’re under attack,
a mirror, when you glisten,
the answer, when, questions arise,
your fortress, when you need a wall,
