Does It Matter?

Love Found

Who Knew?

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!

The Path We Choose

A Soldier's Integrity

What is that Sound?

Back in the 50's Tonight!

Days of Yesteryear

Now in the sunset of my life,
I look back on all the things
I have to be thankful for…
first and foremost my
wonderful wife.

My loving son, daughter
and grandson.
My faithful daughter
and son in-law.

My friends of old, who have
stood by me through thick and
thin, their value to me  like
kin.

My country, may it forever be free!
This great land made up of people
who believe in liberty.

Now my sun may be sinking behind
life’s mountain so high, but the days
of yesteryear are indelible marked
with memories in heaven’s blue sky.

Day of yesterday that will never fade or die,
for the greater sum of me rests in yesterday’s sky.
