Biography of Linda Stroud
I was born on August 17th 1950, Mr.& Mrs. Jobe B.Huntley. I am the eldest of 6 brothers and 1 sister. I am married to Johnny T Stroud Sr.We have 8 children,14 grandchildren and 9 greatchildren. We live in Kannapolis, N.C. a very samll town.It was after the death of my Mother that I began to write poems/poetry. It seemed like everything me was crying out for comfort. I found comfort in writing, because it gave me a chance to write everything I have always felt and was never able to say. It was like a hidden talent sprang forth out of nowhere. I am very thankful to God for what He has allowed me to do with a pen and pencil.My father passed away on June 29th 2000, my Mom Passed away on April 27th 2003 and from that time til now I have spent hours and hours writing.I get great joy out of writing not only to satisfy the pain I have but for others also. As of now, I am a 55 year old high school graduate, and went on to college majoring in Early Childhood. God has been good to me and I have got to be good for Him. I do hope everyone that reads my poems enjoy them as much as I have enjoyed writing them.
Linda Stroud Poems
Mom, Dad, When Will I Ever See You Again...
I've often pondered in my heart Why all the aches and pain? I've often wondered since you've been gone When will I ever see you again?
Mama, I miss you so much I really miss your laughter too, I miss our deep conversations For there were some things I just never knew.
Mama You Forgot To Say Good-Bye
Mama, you went off and left me Without even saying good-bye, You left without a warning And I can't help but wonder why.
In My Big Crayon Box
In my big crayon box I found a beautiful rainbow, I found different races of people That I would just love to know.
Mama, I miss you so much
I really miss your laughter too,
I miss our deep conversations
For there were some things I just never knew.
Mama, I'll cherish everything you told me
And all the advice you'd so wisely give,
You taught me to have sound principals
You taught me how to live.
