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!

Life is a Gamble

I've chased the proverbial rainbow
searching for that elusive pot of gold.
I've grabbed for the brass ring
time and time again.

I've rolled the dice and won
once or twice.
I've kissed Lady luck and
occasionally won a buck.

I've cut the cards and
won with an Ace high.
I've spun the Wheel of
Fortune and kissed
hundreds goodbye.

Over the years,
I've gambled and lost.
I've gambled and won.

Life is a gamble,
and if I've leaned anything,
it's not who wins or loses
that counts, but how honest
you play the game!
