Bill Simmons Poems

The mighty oak I see outside
It's roots are deep and long

Woman, Oh woman
Why do you make me feel
Every time I'm near you
My heads a spinning wheel

What ever happened to the husband and wife
What ever happened to love
What ever happened to the dreams they thought right
That they both thought so much of

This thing that they call love
That so many are in search of
What some they may find and some lose in time
Only the lonely dream of

They say a bird, If you set it free
If it returns to you, It is yours to keep

But if you hold a bird and then set it free

He climbs up on his tracter
Starts up his henry ford
Mows some in his pasture
For a while til he gets bored

The heart it suffers losses
For every single tear
Sometimes when it is lonely
Or feels a heartache near

I don't remember this part at all
It was love, honor and cherish, I recall
For days and days on end
The fighting never ends

Red, red rose, she blew her breath
Fingers, it’s stem she caressed
Then she closed her eyes and breathed the fragrance in
Tell me red, red rose, where does love end

Starlight and moonbeams and dew drops on flowers gleam
That beckon to the Fairy’s touch
Grasshoppers, crickets, they sing their songs
In the night to the one that they love

Morning star from where you are
Can you see my tiny heart
From so many
Can you see the only me

As the silence fell, the birds began to sing
The soldier tries to stand on his own
As the blood trickles down his arm he looks and he see's
As he stands, he finds he's all alone

Here in this valley
I do stand
As I do, I look around me
I see the green grasses and flowers in bloom

Harvest moon, Shining overhead tonight
Guiding my way, shining so bright
Once I knew her love, together we shared your light
But that was before, these tears in my eyes

As he thought to himself about it,
He told his heart
Not to believe what was inside,
When he was through

Your puppy licked my hand today
He doesn't know that you are gone
I reached down, he came to me
He ran right into my arms

In the light of the night
The stars out tonight set the mood
I can see her as she stands before me
Beneath the moon

Today I stand here all alone in the Misty Rain
Contemplating where it is I went wrong again
And as I stand here all alone I realize on my own
Tears that fall aren't hidden at all in the Misty Rain

I counted all the petals
Of a rose today
Loves me, loves me not
I was let down

With his finger on the trigger
He pulled the hammer down
He waited for the orders
From the Colonel to come around

The Best Poem Of Bill Simmons

Lonesome Heart

The mighty oak I see outside
It's roots are deep and long
It will live a hundred years
And bend when winds are strong

I sometimes feel I can't go on
Losing you is hurting me
I sometimes wish late at night
I had the strength of that old tree

The days my friends they stand by me
They tend to help me through
But then at night when darkness falls
Again I'm missing you

I try to fight but strength won't come
Soon I fall apart
Then the tears fall like rain
So alone is a lonesome heart

I sometimes wish I had the strength
To pick up and move along
But memories that I have with you
Streaches the nights so long

I sometimes wish I had the strength
So I would not fall apart
Missing you is against my will
So alone is a lonesome heart.

You should really be writing children's stories. You are a very creative storyteller. I would never want to be the woman who has to say to you 'Tell me the truth.' LOL ;)
