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!

Where's Yesterday?

Bicycles, baseball,
Fishing poles and
swimming holes.

Paper dolls, jumping rope,
giant curlers, pom-pons
and poodle skirts.

The days of wine and roses,
of quick step dance, teenage
glee and sweet song…
now forever gone.

We thought those days
would never end.
If only we could
capture time in
a bottle.

Time is no man’s friend,
it will rob from him …
time and time again.

We thought tomorrow would
never come, but come it has
and  now it’s forever gone.

What is left?…
Tears of  joy, tears of  memory
and the bitter tears of regret.

The aging face in the mirror knows…
the wine so sweet…all gone and the roses
have long wilted in time forlorn.

Life as we then knew it…
is now but a fading dream.
