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!

Last Shadows

Shadows flicker in  the candle light burnt so low.
Life will take you up, down and all around,
before the last snow.
People come and people go,
be sure you know who to trust.
Beware of promises that turn to dust.
Take in account all the days of your
past if you must.
Line all the bottles up
in a nice neat row.
Nothing you can say or do
will change life’s flow.
So sing your song and
dance your dance while
the candle still flickers and  glows.
All the shadows will disappear when
the candle makes its final flicker
and out it will permanently go.
