he did not know how to tell her “i love you”

the young man cried

cause he wanted

his wife to stay with him


when he met her

words of love flowed

from his lips


work, pressures and children

have caused him to forget

how he once was


and his wife

his beautiful wife

feels unloved

and is thinking of leaving him


his tears are real

he does not know how

things have changed

so fast


but he is willing to

make changes


give me wisdom

with what to share with him

to help repair

the damage


lord jesus,

I depend on you

for the words to help

keep this marriage together

As a teen, wanted to live from writing poetry. Wrote several books, selling nationally. Hung out with readers throughout the United States. My writing has been on back burner. Now dusting off my desk and have my pen in hand. Hope you enjoy some of what I write.
