jim foulk Poems

Lonely are the nights
Lonely are the days
Lonely am I, in so many ways

Childhood Faded away,
to a far away land,
simple, so simple were we,
Days of Play,

As out the window,
I look, more snow today,
have only one thing to say,
take our snow please.

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

A Time to live,
a time to die,
life is like a vapor
so short and swift.

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,

Do you barely see,
the sun in the sky,
when you know it's very high.

Birds of spring they
bring on so many things
sounds they send
to each other,

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,
to show my love,
desire, to hold you tight,
know this we our right.

I can smell fall
in the air
my eyes behold
golden leaves as

Today heard a beautiful
sound, it was up in a tree,
sitting on a branch so alone,
spring is near by.

Dad it's been twenty years,
since you have been gone now
when ever I think of you
the thought, brings tears

Drops of Poetry,
on my mind,
soaking in memories,
of things I remember,

There's always tomorrow
when you feel like giving up,
and from another day, you can borrow.

How Beautiful of birds
of the air,
seeing their awesome
wonderful flair.

So many years
ago in days
of my youth,

To many miles apart are we now
can i say i'm sorry anyhow
yesterday we talked about what happened
words were said, that should be tossed away

The Blue Dove Legend.
says it's born every hundred years,
Blue Doves are true,
and brings love.

The Best Poem Of jim foulk

Lonely Am I

Lonely are the nights
Lonely are the days
Lonely am I, in so many ways

Lonely are the seasons
Lonely are the years
So lonely am I, that it brings tears.

Lonely is this place
Lonely is my life
Lonely am I, that I reach for a knife

Lonely is this court room
Lonely is my sentence
So lonely am I that I ask for repentance.
