From a small town in Southern Illinois. I’ve been writing since about 30 years old. When the verses come, I pay attention. I have published my first book mainly to capture my poems for my family. Thoughts of a Daydreamer. I am writing my second book. I can tell I have progressed in my skill and writing styles. I appreciate you taking time to read my thoughts. I never thought I would be called a Poet. But I am proud to be considered one among such wonderful talent.

Still that child

The days have come and gone
With only memories of my past
As my childhood seemed to fade away
And carefree days don’t seem to last

The wrinkles became more noticed
My hair turned grey to white
My eyes began to thin
No matter how hard I try...

I am a Ghost

Into the shadows, Into the wall
I Dissipate more each day
Till the memory has faded
And my reflection shows no more

Where has time gone

From my moment in the sun
Where the lamps now grow dim

For only the...

The path of little sorrow

It was dusk to early morning
When I first felt the alarm
As we searched for words unspoken
When you touched me on the arm

We have passed our last horizon
I have no more tears to shed
Draw the shades down on the window
Put this old man...

New Moment, New Year

A moment flashes by
And did We notice it was gone
They pass at quantum speed
Not recognizing one from the other

Congregating as memories
We cherish them good or bad
Into days months and years
Scrutinized Harshly

As new moments are...

Little Pecks

That little kiss in the morning
It may be just a peck
Another in the evening
Gives me goosebumps on my neck

It may be just that simple
That you love me everyday
Cause a peck is worth a million
Signs of love you send my way

I’d be lost...

Thank you for taking time to look up my hometown and share your thoughts with me. Seldom do people care as much as you. Means a lot.
I’ve watched the determination over the years. The people are wonderful and it truly breaks my heart. I shared this poem with them and it tears at their hearts. They love it as much as me. Cairo will always be my home.
