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!

Life is Like a Good Book...

The story is over,
the last page has been read.

The first chapter started seventy years ago,
in a cabin, near a babbling brook.
And as the pages quickly turned…
Days turned to week, months
and years and now one last look.

Sometimes the story was sad.
Sometime the story was glad.
All in all, its not been too bad.

Good things must end.
Life is like that, it’s no sin.

I hope you’ve enjoyed reading it,
as much as I’ve enjoyed living it!

It’s time to take a last look.
No tears…
for its been a great book!

Jackie R. Kays
