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?

Untitled

Disrespect?

'OH! My,my,my!"

Warriors

Disrespect!

Beware!

Untitled

Forgive and Forget?

So Why Should I?

Fifty Years Later

All in a DAY

A Warrior's Soul

"Good Life"

"If"

My Only Son

GONE!

"American Pie"

War is Hell!

Daream Catcher

Time is a Thief!

Ode to T/Sgt. Glenn Wilson

Never To Late!

If...

I don't know why, but the tears come easy now.
Maybe it because the best part of my life is in
the past, and my future holds no surprises, joy,
or innocent anticipation of Spring days that are
yet to be cast.  

If, If…that's a familiar word with me theses days.
Things might have been different, if I had taken
this path or that one over there, but to question
those decisions today is not really fair.

Time has nullified all of my choices, right or wrong.
I am were I am, and there's no turning back, no
starting over, no turning a new leaf. I'm here now…
and here now I must face my grief.  

If…I just had more time,
I think I might make my life rhyme.
