As you can see to the right (sidebar), several new pages have been added. Poems seem to be the main attraction to my site, as opposed to writing tips.

So for now, my focus on this site will be adding some of my favorite poems. I’m hoping you will enjoy reading several, more than once. I will be adding some dedication poems in the near future [as time allows].

Almost all of my writings are based on personal experiences or the experiences of persons close to me. The most recent additions are a couple of funny poems sure to make you smile.

Feel free to share this site [and the love] with your friends and family. Remembering: We can laugh, smile, sigh and even cry a little together!

It’s all good and every new day is a gift to be unwrapped with love in our hearts. I hope my words will become a small ribbon, woven around each gift of a new day.

Thank you to every Veteran – for protecting us – with your very lives.

Happy Veteran’s Day to all the Armed Forces and their families. Let us remember the many sacrifices made by these patriots, in order to protect the freedoms and rights of all our citizens.

The day will be filled with mixed emotions, most especially the families of those soldiers who have given their lives, so that we might enjoy the freedoms we do. The following poem was written as my small way to honor our troops. It is not a clever or lengthy piece, just a few words I hope might speak volumes:

They Mourn

Guarding Their Comrades

Duly Stood Brave Soldiers

The Silent Platoons

Ambushed Our Enemies

Freedom Still Remains

Another Assignment Done

Duty Completed

They Rejoice For Us, Then Mourn

For those of us who have not faced the rages of war, we can never know the depth of emotions coursing through the veins of every Soldier, as they face their enemy. To take another’s life is not done without burden. They carry the weight of so much, we might not even consider as a consequence.

Let us acknowledge our Heroes, their sacrifices and willingness to give their very lives, so that we might enjoy the many freedoms we have. Please thank a Soldier today.
