Too Much To Lose

Sometimes we fall in love
Only to lose it

Sometimes we realize
That it was not meant to be

Sometimes we know
That we should have held on

In each case, only when
We realize what is within us
Will we fully realize
What we have

And only then
Will we realize
That what we had
Was too much to lose

The Greatest Gift

The greatest gift anyone can give
Is the gift of themselves

The gift of love that two people share
Is a magical gift
One of destiny
Loyalty, trust, passion
And the gift of themselves
To each other

You cannot change yesterday.
You can only make the most of today
And look with hope toward tomorrow

Peace is found not in what surrounds you
But in what you hold within

The Life Of A Poet

A poet’s life is not what it seems

It’s much more than just words

More than stanzas, verses and rhymes

It’s writing through your chronic pain

Your grief and your failures

Your good days will shine

As your words start to flow

But your bad days will show

And everyone will know

So we take a deep breath and we write

Our words help relieve the pain

And get us through the day

Our words are our life

They give us hope and we go on

We love what we do

But not always what we write

Our hearts are shared with our words

Our souls are bared for all to see

We write to live, to share our love

We write for us and we write for you

Our words can hurt

Like the pain we feel

But they give us hope

While they help us heal

This is our life, our reality

We take each other on a journey of love

While God send us the words

On the wings of a dove

Some Things Are Better Left Unsaid


Hurtful words

Spoken in anger
poken in haste
Spoken in sarcasm
Words that weren’t meant

When these words have been spoken
The damage has already been done
These words can be forgiven
But they will never be forgotten

Before you speak, remember this…

Some things are better
Left unsaid

My Writing Is More Than Words

As writers, we all use words as building blocks
Put together in sentences

My writing is more than just words
The words come from my heart
The writing comes from love
So much more than just words

When I hear the sounds of the night
The wind through the trees
The laughter of my grandsons
I start putting them to words

Words that describe how they make me feel
About love and life
Good times and bad
I write what I feel

Anyone can put words on paper
But can anyone create images with those words?
Memories in your own mind?

I write from almost 74 years of life
Ups and downs
Around and around
My words are my life

When you sit down to write
Let your mind fly free
Let the memories caress you
Like mine have with me

So open your mind
Let your fantasies unwind
They are more than mere words
If you just take the time

Whether your thoughts or mine
We’re all much the same
So write down your words
And your memory will remain

My Perfect Poison

Late nights, early mornings

Here I go again

You’re my perfect poison

You’re in my blood

I can’t quit

You’ve become my favorite drug

One more time could be my death

And I don’t even care

You draw me in like it’s a sin

I don’t care what people say

It never mattered anyway

I come to you to keep the wolves away

You’re my perfect poison
