Does It Matter?

Love Found

Who Knew?

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!

What is that Sound?

Back in the 50's Tonight!

Golden as Gold can Be!

Light as a Feather

I’ve seen snow cap Mount Fuji,
the wide Pacific from thirty
thousand feet.

I’ve seen the sun rise in Vietnam
and set in Key West.
I’ve seen the city light of Paris
from the top of the Eiffel Tower’s
metal nest.

I’ve lived through world war two,
the Korean war, and Vietnam too.
I seen the demise of Hitler,
Tojo and Stalin get his due.

I’ve seen the development of television,
the Atomic bomb, the jet plane and
helicopters new.

I’ve seen the cure of many deadly diseases,
the heart transplant, and cloning too.

I witness man walk on the moon,
and a woman in space on her way
to a far off star base.  

I’ve seen man murdered, maimed and
killed for causes only God could understand.

Now my time is running out and I still wonder
what life is all about.

But that’s all right…
for me it will always be sunny weather.
For after all of this...
death appears as light as a feather.
