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

The Highwayman

*Let My Spirit Soar*

C'est La Vie

Les feuilles mortes

Before Destiny takes me!

The Hanging Tree

Lost in Time

The Golden Years?

Beyond The Shadows

A Soilder

Ode to an Old Cowboy Poet named....Jack

Our Flag!

Come on Down!

Lonely Desperado

Now all he does is reminisce
about those early days of  
that first sweet kiss and
their young marital bliss.

Back, back in time when
their love was as sweet
as a glass of cheery wine.

But the sand in the hourglass
has quickly robbed him of
his darling brown eyed lass.

His sun and moon have collided,
his world has been smashed like
a piece of broken glass.

Now he waits for the sand in his hourglass
to empty and until then, he will remain
The Lonely Desperado to the very end.

  Jackie R. Kays
