The Loneliness Of The Lonely

What is it like to feel lonely?
To be lonely?
To feel lost… alone… unwanted?
You may think you know
But you don’t

How can you be surrounded by people
Yet nobody sees you
Talks to you… smiles at you…

How can anyone live like this?
Why even go on living this way?

I’ve found so many lonely souls here
Searching for answers
Wanting someone to talk to
Someone to listen to their pain
Someone to help

I’ve tried to help
But I can’t do it alone

Will you be their answer?
Their saving grace?
Will you step up and help them?
Lead them out of their loneliness?

Or will you turn your back
And walk away?

It’s so easy to help
Just listen to them
Talk with them
Be a friend

Be the difference in their life
Just be there

Make it happen
Do it now!

Be Free

Set yourself free
Leap with the dolphins
Fly with the eagles
Soar with the doves
Run with the horses

Find the love inside you
Embrace it
Let it set you free

Feel the presence of love
Spread your wings
And fly

It’s never too late

You can still be free

Walking Through My Memories

As I grow older I look back on my life
Memories of younger days that make me smile
Piano lessons, trying a trumpet, didn’t work for me
Finally the drums and I knew what I’d be

Playing in bands, high school and college
Rock and roll bands and big bands too
Marching bands and symphony orchestras
Keeping the beat became what I do

A Missile Combat Crew Commander at age 22
In a band in North Dakota called the Zodiac Zoo
Playing Hendrix and Cream to relieve the stress
Of knowing I controlled 10 nuclear missiles

I served my country and did what I needed to do
Days of glory, music and love
ost our first baby while I was on alert
It was a boy, we were filled with hurt

A few years later God gave us a son
I was working at a tourist attraction, Ausable Chasm
Playing in a band called “The Now & Thens”
Writing songs and rocking weekends at the Friendly Tavern

After vacations in Florida it became clear
I’d been sprinkled with pixie dust
So we packed up and moved
Kissimmee, Florida – home of the Mouse

Started working at EPCOT
A tour guide on the Land boat ride
World of Motion and others
But soon found I couldn’t earn enough

Ended up in hotel and resort management
Did really well
Became a resort General Manager
Until the BIG HURT

Lost my first wife too early
Pulmonary fibrosis they said
The only thing I knew
Was that she was dead

One door had closed, but another door opened
Now I’m remarried and retired in Tennessee
My life has been filled with its ups and downs
But I’m still here and I’m sticking around

Soulana, Sister Land To Everdream

It’s a magical place that I visit
As I sit alone in the dark
A place of mystery and night songs
Where I go to quiet my heart

It’s doesn’t matter if I write
For that’s not why I’ve come
Soulana is my quiet place
To visit when day is done

But the music of Soulana fills my soul
And poems start to form
My heart tells me what to write
As words escape my pen

The words start flowing faster now
Words of love and words of life
Inspiration comes in wave after wave
Tsunamis of words that I need to write

Find your Soulana and go there tonight
The words will come and you’ll start to write
Feel the magic of Soulana flow through your pen
It will make you believe in your writing again

Somebody Like You

When we got together
I never realized
How much my life would change

Today, my life is complete
Better… Fuller…
All because I found somebody like you

Our ranch
Our horses, dogs and family
All mean so much to me

But nothing means more
Than the love we have together
And it’s all because I found

Somebody like you

A Land Called Everdream

In my head there’s a land called Everdream
Where I write my poems under bright moonbeams
Where the ink flows from deep in my heart
And music is played on a golden harp

I write of kindness, beauty and love
Of blessings sent from the heavens above
Poems for lovers who renew their vows
Words on paper that I hope will arouse

Everdream, created by me, created for you
Where I write my poems, some old, some new
A magical place that’s found in my head
Where I work my magic that may never be read

I write for lovers whose stars have crossed
To make them realize they were never lost
My words will reach them in their dreams
And welcome them to Everdream

A Life Worth Living

I was taught at an early age
To live a life of kindness
Compassion… Caring…
A life of value and worth

I’m a Preacher’s kid
Brought up in the church
My Dad was a writer of God’s words
The best speaker I have ever heard

I learned my prayer before bed:
Now I lay me down to sleep
I pray the Lord my soul to keep
If I should die before I wake
I pray the Lord my soul to take

I learned my prayer before a meal:
God is Great and God is Good
And we thank Him for our food
By His Goodness all are fed
Give us Lord our daily bread

The foundations set in my early years
Have guided my through my life
I’ve made mistakes like humans do
Mistakes that have made me stronger and wiser

My life has not been all peaches and cream
But I’ve done what I could and offered my hand
I’ve always helped others along the way
And have never regretted the path I have taken

I think my Dad and Mom would be proud
Of the son they raised and the man I’ve become
I am who I am because of their love
And hope that I’ve lived a life worth living

A Writer’s Confession

Have you ever wondered why you write?
Is it for me or is it for you?
Am I writing for the right reasons?
And what are the “right reasons”?

Do I write to get likes?
Comments? Followers?
Or do I write because the words inside me
Simply need to be put on paper?

I write to fill a need in myself and a need in you
A need to release feelings trapped inside
A need for self expression
A need to create a written record of my life

I write to express love, beauty, the wonders of life
I follow no rules, I just write what I feel
I write to create images in your mind
To make you feel what you read

I am a creator
Therefore I write
