Everything Is Different Now

In life
There are always changes
How we handle them
Is a true measure of our character

I have had good changes
And I have had bad
But each time
I held my head up and said

Everything is different now”

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 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

Whisper The Words

After my post on Tuesday called Words Of A Poet,
I was asked by several followers to post some of my
early poetry. This was originally posted on my
website on January 25, 2002.
I created the title image seen here.
I hope you enjoy it.

Whisper to me
Softly… gently
Tell me you love me
Capture my heart
As you whisper the words

Whisper sweet melodies
s we dance with each other
Look deep in my eyes

And whisper the words

Words Of A Poet

Piles of papers
Piles of notes
Filled with my writing
Words that I wrote

Words that had leaked
From my head to my pen
Maybe someday I’ll post them
Right now I don’t know when

Some words have no meaning
They’re different from the rest
The question I am faced with
Is will they stand the test

It doesn’t really matter
Much at all to me
Maybe when the time comes
I will hear their silent plea

I’ll put them in a poem
For all the world to see
I’ll show you all my poetry
You’ll then see the real me

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
