"Let us thank God for life and the blessings He's put before us. High among them are our families, our freedom, and the opportunities of a new year. Let us renew our faith that as free men and women we still have the power to better our lives, and let us resolve to face the challenges of the new year holding that conviction firmly in our hearts. That, after all, is our greatest strength and our greatest gift as Americans."
— Ronald Reagan -

don't think of me
don't walk my thoughts
don't try to read between the lines
don't question
don't ask
don't think
don't feel
don't be
that is me

2002

I won't ask again
I can't ask again
I don't matter enough
for the effort

2001

When is good bye, good bye
Can there be a good bye without a good bye?
Can one so easily be forgotten
Can one just fade away like a forgotten memory?
Was it goodbye, the last good bye?

Christmas is coming and I'm just not ready to face it this year, of course I never am but this year is going to be so hard, it's going to be so lonely.

His distractions and coldness have stolen my thoughts.

1998

the house is empty this morning
A nice solitude engulfs me
peace, a time to think without things hindering the process
words seem lost
stress is gone

hmmmm...sneeze, cough..

colors, lots of colors in my mind
thoughts of a gift to give
thoughts of words to say
feelings evaluated
longing unanswered

hmmmmm---sneeze, cough..

dang cold is messing it all up

1997

Sometimes we may learn more from a man's errors, than from his virtues.
- Henry Wadsworth Longfellow -
