When you smile that smile, I nearly lose my mind. I can’t take the eyes off of you That never thought they’d find Someone that looks the way you do, Whose lips seem like they’re Sweet to consume. If there is still room In the heart left behind, What’s not torn up inside, Nobody would ever love you The way I’d love you my whole life through.

Each poem in this collection of my poetry from the past forty years is like a picture frozen in time: a snapshot from my life. Sometimes my feelings surprise me and sometimes they confirm me.
