Biography of Robert Edgar Burns
I am a 59 year old married man, going on 42 years to my High School Sweetheart Kathie. i Love babysitting grandkids and writing poetry and short stories, and putting them in the action. I am a retired Law Enforcement Officer from the Tampa Bay, Florida area. I have two grown children, Amy 33 and Roger 41 and 3 grandsons from 5 to 18 years old. I am an avid Biker but with a purpose!
I love playing the guitar and writing my own music. I am on the board of directors of a local charity called 'Born Again To Ride.' We take our motorcycles into jails and prisons all over the country taking athletes and entertainers with us to bring a message of hope to the inmates. My Favorite saying is 'As a man thinks in his heart, SO IS HE! ' Also 'Out of the abundance of the heart, the mouth speaks.' A third would be: Life is short. Death is sure! Sin's the cause. Christ's the cure! I have 12 Tattoos on my arms
all based on Biblical Scriptures which I call my sermon notes! I have Glaucoma, Diabetic Retinopathy,
and Macular Degeneration, so I am going blind rapidly.

Robert Edgar Burns Poems
Where wild flowers are roaming free.
There are multitudes of colors
And their backdropp forest greens.
Beneath every smile there are tears.
In front of all women there are stop signs.
In the heart of all hero's are fears.
Speak of the Law Of Thermodynamics.
Creation past has been completed.
It is finished should be repeated.
Of a local Taco Bell,
After an especially hectic
Law Enforcement night!
A namesake shining through.
A bloodline that continues on,
Through eternal springs of youth.
My Heart's Pilot!
You are the sail from masts unfurled,
That forward moves my bow.
You are the Captain of my ship,
Who points me where and how.
You are my pilot ably strong,
Who stands firm at the wheel.
I will not question where you lead,
For it’s you who rights my keel.
