A complete collection of poetry beginning with my first poem, written in 1992 through to the last poem written in 2010. Each poem that I could find that was penned by my hand appears in this book. I have truly poured my heart and soul out in these pages, so I hope you enjoy them.
I could not ask for more
For I have been blessed ten-fold.
I’ve been given a good wife
To lean on and love in this life.
I’ve got a friend who will always care
And boy, is that something rare.
I’ve got children who love me
Cause I can make them laugh and keep them happy.
I don’t have much wealth
But at least I’ve got good health.
I have a family who loves
Everything God gives us from above.
So I really don’t want more
And for that I’ve been blessed ten-fold.
Don’t Be Blue
You’ve been hurt before
And you don’t want to love anymore
But even if you get at a real low
Please allow me to be your hero.
A hero who will love you till the end
And will always be your best friend.
A hero who fits your life like a glove
And who with you is madly in love.
Love has a hurtful sting
But it doesn’t mean a thing
As long as we’re together and stay sane.
What I’m trying to say is, “Don’t be blue
Cause no matter what I’ll always love you.”
How could I have known
I would end up heartbroken?
We had good times together
That made me feel light as a feather.
But I’m glad I didn’t know
Cause you caused my soul to glow
And the time we had was fun
But now our fun is done.
I would not have missed this for anything
The world, emeralds, rubies, or a diamond ring.
I often wonder if the love I gave in the past
Would in your heart last
But now I see I was wrong
And in my mind I was not strong.
I know now not to past up a chance
To show my love in a song or dance
What I’m trying to say is I love you
And everything you do
Cause I have seen where I’ve been
And I don’t want to be heartbroken again.
