Loyd C. Taylor
Biography of Loyd C. Taylor
Loyd is one of 12 children and grew up as a simple country boy in the great state of North Carolina. His parents were a source of inspiration by providing him with a rich and full appreciation for life and living… and of faith and family. Much of his writing reflects a sense of deep Southern roots. Loyd's wife, Kathy, is the source of inspiration for his romance and relationship poetry. Loyd’s writings reveal a person who is thankful for each day God allows him to live. He takes notice of the everyday common graces that many may take for granted. Loyd prefers the cool mountains and streams above the ocean and hot sand, but loves all of God’s creation. Loyd loves America. He respects and admires greatly those who are serving or have served in the military to preserve America’s freedom. In Loyd’s own words, he says, “I by no means consider myself to be a great poet, certainly not a professional poet; I do, however, believe God has given me a gift-a muse, if you would. So I just follow my muse and write the way that I think and feel. I prefer the title: “Simple Poet” for it suits me and my writing. I feel very blessed by anyone who has read and has enjoyed my writing. So, let me say a big thank you to all who take of their precious time reading my work. Thank you, Loyd

Father Poetry: A Fathers Tribute
FATHERS Fathers … They are strong
I’ll Put Some Coffee On
The time has finally come, there is no one here now and I’m alone. I shouldn’t be surprised, for loneliness is the story of my life. I have the rope ready and my stool, now I will put on this tight sweatshirt to secure my arms, just in case I change my mind. But, I know I won’t, I just have to end this suffering, I hope to God I have the courage to see it through.
A Tree Perspective
I've seen you in this barren space Standing majestically tall, I've gazed upon your elegance From winter through to fall.
Father poetry: Fathers Are
Fathers… Are faithfull, strong and true, Providing for our needs; They give us words of truth,
A Rainbow Is...
A Rainbow is… An undeniable natural beauty, Appearing mysteriously,
When I chose To burn my bridges to you, O what a stupid choice I made; For I burned my fingers with the matches.
I Love Growing Old with You
I love the newness of life from our younger years, I love the sweet tears the first time I saw you cry, I love the childish days of innocent mistakes, I love the careless ways as we let time slip by.
The Thief and the Cross
He was just a common thief And now he must pay. His wicked deeds found him, Condemned to die today.
The Pastor's Wife
She serves in a position she had not sought for in her life
She simply fell in love with a man called into ministry,
You may know her; she’s the pastor’s wife.
She accepted her role to live for Jesus and share the Gospel light.
She just wanted to make God and her husband proud,
Just happy to be the pastor’s wife.
She started on her journey, her expectations soaring high.
