Biography of Kathleen West
The power of words, and how it affects people, is amazing to me. Words create understanding between people. The rhythm of a beautifully written verse, has an almost musical flow to it, and is a joy to the reader.
I started writing poetry in my early teens, and ever since, have kept my best writings in a book. Some of my poems were written for a special occassion, others given as a gift, and some were written at hard times in my life. Life has many stages, and I am eager to embrace each one to the fullest!
Kathleen West's Works:
I have no published books but I am in process of making a CD of songs that I have written.

Now You Are Gone
You are a part of my thoughts
Why can't you leave me alone?
You were a part of my life

When you're so much a part of me
How can I begin to forget
When you torment me even in dreams
