Another day to get it right
My path here as been bright.

So I won... Read more
Loss, Grief and Letting Go
For past three years eight loved ones died
And my sadness was something I've tried to hide.

A healthy way that makes m... Read more

Rockin and rollin in my new shoes
Is this exercise, or just the blues?
Feel like I'm 6 feet in the air
And walking like a drunk w/o a care.

Roses are red,
Violets are blue,

Rhyming My Weigh With Water
Water, to me, is as needed as air.
I drink and I drink with not even a care
About soft drinks or coffee, as far as I see
There's nothing like water - as good as can be!... Read more
In thinking of my Uncle Sal,
He was my uncle, was my pal.
At 16 he signed his name
And then a Navyman became.

A child whose life had just begun
Go to fight in the Korean War,
But Uncle Sal would hear ... Read more
