Best Poem of Jim Yerman

Love Nest

I recently ran across a list Deborah and I created long ago
It contained the dreams for our perfect house...our ideal bungalow.

We called it our North Carolina Love Nest and it was to be our creed
For we thought, on this paper, we listed everything we'd need.

Everything to keep us contented, our personal honeycomb
Everything our minds could think of...to make a happy home.

We were young and innocent back then...and our dreams...unlimited and grand
But despite our best intentions...life didn't go the way we planned.

You see we never built our dream ...

Faces Of Courage

I saw him on the evening news, the soldier in his hospital bed
Whom everyone thought unconscious and unable to move his head.

But Corporal Hargis was awake…in fact he was astute
For when he was given his Purple Heart he found the strength to salute.

Thank you Corporal Hargis for your courage helps keep the rest of us free.
But your story got me to thinking about all the faces of courage I see.
