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

Time doesn't Lie

Day by day…
time quickly ticks away.

We fight, fuss,  plan and pray…
that everything will evolve our way.

But, as sure as Murphy’s law…
the sky seem to all ways fall.

Bad luck…
The deck is stacked against us…
We can’t win for losing.

Why, Oh why…
do we  even bother  to try.

Yesterday is long gone…
Today is all wrong…
and Tomorrow…
never comes.

So let’s just sit around…
and have ourselves…
a merry little break-down…
And  cry…cry… cry.

Look in the mirror…
time doesn’t lie.
