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
In the meadow of the valley, Where wild flowers are roaming free. There are multitudes of colors And their backdropp forest greens.
Behind every clown is a sad man. Beneath every smile there are tears. In front of all women there are stop signs. In the heart of all hero's are fears.
The Cycle Of Life
When articulating of semantics, Speak of the Law Of Thermodynamics. Creation past has been completed. It is finished should be repeated.
When we are the weakest, We are like large lumps of clay, That the potter must tread down, To make his great art for display.
The Taco Bell!
I went through the drive thru Of a local Taco Bell, After an especially hectic Law Enforcement night!
What Is A Son?
A promise of tomorrow. A namesake shining through. A bloodline that continues on, Through eternal springs of youth.
Cooking Up A Friendship!
How can I show my love for friends? I’ll cook up something grand and then, I’ll add some sugar right from my heart, To sweeten it so it’s not to tart.
If my shoulder isn’t soft enough, Let’s place a pillow there. So I can hold you in my arms, And gently stroke your hair.
Sunrise Sunset Kids!
Don’t forget the sun screen son. And please watch out for sharks. Remember to have lots of fun, But be home before it’s dark!
A Trip To The Zoo!
I once saw an albino kangaroo, Beside a tasmanian devil at the Melbourne zoo! A koala was there, While a wombat combed the hair,
Forever Loved And Cherished
Take my hand walk along with me. What a friend we have in Jesus. Love shines a light on stepping stones, From God’s precious love,
Sunshine, Lollipops And Rainbows
Sunshine, lollipops and rainbows. Three things that always make me smile. I learned appreciation for theses things While I was still a very small child.
I wasn't born just yesterday And I'm certainly not a fool. But the middle of an Oreo cookie Is where we first go to.
The Horse Whisperer
One day I walked through a green pasture. A brown horse was standing in the shade. I came up to him slowly and softly said, Hey there boy.....
Get down on the floor Grandpa
And play cars with me o.k?
Then you can read me stories.
Can we do this every day?
I will run and hide on you,
Underneath my big boy bed.
I will take my bear with me
And some peanut butter bread.
