It's been said that T. J. Daniels' poetry has a Shakespearean innocence, a gentle tone. His collection of poetry continues to grow, and blossom.

T.J. Daniels Poems
For My Brother
You were still my brother no matter what you did
Where the Ocean Meets the Sky
True love is found in a special place that is sometimes hard to find.
I hear the songs of yesterday when love was new.
Dad, I Have Something to Tell You
'Dad? ' 'Yes son, what is it? '
For My Children
I was not the perfect father but you became great adults
I Don't Miss You Any More
I've missed you for so long I don't miss you anymore.
Memories Don't Listen
I pushed the memories of her back to wherever it is
Blood On The Sand
Kids with guns are in control.
Now I Lay Me Down to Sleep
Please pick me up for I am tired.
A Singer With No Song
I'm a singer with no song
Smoke on the Water
Like smoke on the water life drifts through the mists of time.
The Curve of Her Thighs
I never saw the curve of her thighs.
I'll Love You 'til Tomorrow
I'll love you 'til tomorrow plus another day.
Have Faith in Me
Have faith in me. More than I have in myself.

For My Brother
You were still my brother
no matter what you did
or how you lived
and I loved you.
We were not as close
in latter years
as we were
when we were younger.
I wish you were here
so I could hold you
one last time
before you had to go.
The last time I saw you
you looked so very cold.
(Dedicated To The Memory Of my Brother
Who Died Last Year)
