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
To me cause I will endure the pain
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.
