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!

My Old Friend...Depression

Hello there my old friend depression,
I've been expecting you!
You're right on time to help me write
this lonely and forlorn rhyme.  

If I didn't have you where would I be?
Maybe happy, content or lighthearted
in any event.

You always show up when I'm all
alone for you like to hear me moan
and groan.

You think if you stick around, a tear or two
I might shed like a pitiful painted face clown.

You laugh, mock and make fun of my hidden
pain, then join in with your sneaky buddy
old man time to destroy my reverie, and that's
so vain.    

That's all right…
for my wife will soon be back,
and then, my old friend
you will quickly hit the track.
