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!

The Book Of Life

The Book of life is brief, the pages turn quickly
like in a short nursery rhyme, and the fleeting
shadows of life dance on the garden wall in double time.

What's on those pages, is up to you.
It's your life to do with as you choose to.

But, keep in mind those page are only held together
by delicate twine. So, when you misuse those
pages, your life become a real grind.

When the book of life closes, it's not what's on
the cover that make the book sublime, but what
was on those pages, held together by that thin
line of delicate twine...The Book of Life.
