How to erase history!

Seasons of my life

Why Do We Stand?

I'll Always Be There!

I Feel Just Like a Baby!

That's Life!

That's Life!

War is Hell

Oh! Where did it all go?



'OH! My,my,my!"





Forgive and Forget?

So Why Should I?

Fifty Years Later

All in a DAY

A Warrior's Soul

"Good Life"


My Only Son


"American Pie"

War is Hell!

Daream Catcher

Time is a Thief!

Ode to T/Sgt. Glenn Wilson

Never To Late!

Cry Not for Me

Where to from here
Time is in fifth gear
Death seems so near

Just one last glass of
cherry wine
Pain and strife soon
to be no longer mine

Young to old
I've lived it bold
all good things
must come to an
So now I'm about to
join my ancient kin

Tranquility, solitude,
silence forever to be,
bury me under that
old oak tree

Leave a red rose at my
head and think often of
me as alive not dead

Cry not for me, for
a good life I've had
for urchin boy
Öthat is!
