    Don - Your 'special' beautiful poem almost made me cry - sooooooooooooooo beautiful!
    And to think that you thought of me at this [present] time..........
    Your poems are wonderful - most enjoyable, if through tears or laughter....
    Do get back to the 'indelible' ink Don, get yourself out and about to wander Australia and create some more Australian masterpieces.

    Keep smilin' sweet man.
    You know who - from you know where.

Best Poem of Don Stratford

Love Me Or Leave Me

How can you say you love me?
How can you say you care?
When you never, never show me
That you are prepared to share

How can you talk of sorry?
How can you talk of pain?
It’s time you looked at what you do
There’s much for you to gain

What is it you expect of life?
Is it just your selfish ways
Or do you think that you know all
And wish to keep me in a haze

It’s time for things to alter
You need to change your hard, fast life
If we’re to have a future
You need to listen to your wife

Read the full of Love Me Or Leave Me

Be A Man

To be man you don’t cry
You must stand up and be tall
It’s the way of the world
Oh bugger it all

How to deal with the pain
That is burning inside
For the loss of my wife
I won’t cry it’s called pride
