Hopefully, They will Say...

Does It Matter?

Love Found

Who Knew?

My Little Dog named-Art



Yesterday's Autumn

A Bowl of Cheers?

I Say!

My Quest

Near Miss

Dreams of Yesterday

Do You Remember?

Ten

When is it all going to end?

Sleep

Just Let It Be

La Vie en Rose

Heads in the Sand?

If I've Learned Anything!

Silver Bullet

The Path We Choose

A Soldier's Integrity

What is that Sound?

Back in the 50's Tonight!

A Red Rose

Golden as Gold can Be!

Robin Fly Away

You See!

The Demise of the Old Cowboy

What Will I Miss?

Ode to Christian "Kiki" Fenot

Bobby and Me

Jack

I’ve crossed the line.
I’ve walked that bamboo
bridge many times.

I know, right from wrong.
I’ve sung a lonely song.
I’ve faced the war viper.
I’ve paid the piper.
I’ve felt the scorch of hell,
and survived until now
to tell.

Without regrets, without looking back,
I fade away in the night so black.
Just remember my name was,

Jack.
