"Jack Who?"

Ain't That a Shame?

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?

Today is a Gift

Today is a gift,
Yesterday is gone,
and tomorrow never
comes, so make today
the day…

You hug your children.
Express your love to
your spouse.
Call your sister and tell
her you are sorry.

Hold your mother in your arms
and tell her how much you love her.
Talk to your best friend and tell her
or him what they mean to you.

Today can not be exchanged,
or relived  for you see…
each day is a gift from God
and will never be granted again.

Jackie R. Kays
2004
