A Portrait of my Life
Fifty Years of Tears
Do You Remember When?
Ain't That a Shame?
Hopefully, They will Say...
Does It Matter?
My Little Dog named-Art
A Bowl of Cheers?
Dreams of Yesterday
Do You Remember?
When is it all going to end?
Just Let It Be
La Vie en Rose
Heads in the Sand?
If I've Learned Anything!

Golden Adventure of the Mind
Come along with me!
Relax your mind and soul,
I’ll take you to a tropic island
and we’ll search for pirate’s gold.
Straight into the copper sun and across
the aqua blue sea we shall sail…
just you and me.
The mast stands tall as the giant white
sails fill and flutter with the power
from these mighty southern winds.
An adventure you’ll not soon forget.
We’ll shall sail away from all our
troubles and sins.
We’ll ride this sleek hull schooner through
the white foaming waves of eternal time.
We’ll drink the finest wine and sit at an
exquisite gourmet table to dine.
Our troubles, we’ll shall leave behind!
Songs of merriment we shall sing,
as we dream of finding diamonds,
shiny bauble’s and golden rings.
White sea gulls fly high in the summer sky.
Dauphins will guide us by day, and by night
we’ll follow the North star’s guiding light.
Time can go to hell…
for we are sailing by
the sound of this
ghost ship's silver bell.
Into the copper sun we shall sail,
we’ll defy all of the dark storm’s
lighting, thunder and hail.
Ah! yonder it be,
that exotic island in the middle
of this aqua sea.
White sandy beaches and palm
trees as far as the eye can see.
There it is…
just waiting for you and me.
Grab your shovel and broad blade,
ashore we shall go!
Gold, diamonds and silver in six bits,
we shall find in that treasure hole.
Now we’ll have no more troubles or woes.
No more highs and lows.
Peace of mind we shall from now on know!
Now aren’t you glad you came along!
Gold and diamonds you may not have
found, but friendship and poetry here
