Always Someone Worse
There are times we feel, like giving up, empty, drawn out, life not worth living,

Who am I to criticize others, I'm a poet in my own time, my own place and my own world. I just write what I see feel,
Birds Of Spring
Birds of spring they bring on so many things sounds they send to each other,
Do you barely see, the sun in the sky, when you know it's very high.
Buried Between Two Trees
Back home again in the yard I used to play in
Dogs are one kind of friend to have, memories of them we share in our hearts
Blue Roses Just For You
Blue Roses Just For You, to show my love, desire, to hold you tight, know this we our right.
Colors Of Autumn
I can smell fall in the air my eyes behold golden leaves as
First Robin Of Spring
Today heard a beautiful sound, it was up in a tree, sitting on a branch so alone, spring is near by.
A Letter To My Dad
Dad it's been twenty years, since you have been gone now when ever I think of you the thought, brings tears
Only Memories Left
Searching my youth of another day
of time that went away
back in the old home town
with family and friends, brings a frown.
To be home again
of my search I begin
the places I remember are gone now
to progress they have bowed.
