My Books

I feel your touch

When I’m alone;

Life’s never too much

On our own.

I see your smile

Inside my heart;

No matter the mile

We’re not apart.

I hear your voice

Wherever I roam,

And I rejoice

Knowing I’m home.

Let us pretend

Life doesn’t end.

There’s no war,

No keeping score.


No one grows old,

Hungry or cold;

There’s always enough

When life’s rough.


No one knows

Pain or woes,

People aren’t shun

Seen as one.


Life isn’t perfect

We can’t neglect

Work to reshape,

Not to escape.

A moment of silence
Isn’t enough,
Neither is lowering
The Flag.

Candlelight vigils
Quickly burn out;
Deaths pile up
In vain.

The battle won’t
Be won,
Until we lay
Down guns.

The world is
The community.
Peace comes living
As one.
