Dates To Remember

A place to go, a place to be,
I have a date at a place to be,
a place to go and people to see.

Silence Of War

Over the jungles filled with war
another mission once more.
Only days away
until my tour is done.

View In The Mirror

This morning and so many mornings before
I wash my face to begin my day.
As I look into the mirror, I see the wrinkles
and hair that has turned gray.

Kindness In A Smile

A smile is like sunshine that brightens my day,
a smile that chases away a dreary day.
A smile that shines through the darkness of a day,
as if the night had come too soon.

Autumn Love

Autumn leaves fall with grace so as not to
disturb the floor of the earth as it
gives cover to say farewell to the season.
Wildlife feeds on the fruits and nuts of the season's bounty.

Letters Home From Vietnam

As a Soldier in Vietnam I would write letters home,
to tell the family how I am.

Not saying much about

I Am There

In my mind,
I go places that many are not aware of,
nor do they know the pain that haunts my soul.
A place where some have never returned,

Grown Men Don't Cry

Feelings that give thoughts that seem
to drift into a place where my
eyes close to hold back the tears.
To walk away,

Grim Days

I have laughed,
I have cried,
I have friends that I had to tell goodbye.
I have retained the kindness we shared,

You Must Have Been Away

Today I spoke of my love for you.
But you must have been away.
I talked of the stars
and how they seem to be so secure
