Us Country Boys

They live in the city with neon lights Where folks, they just don’t sleep at night Back on the farm where things are quiet Lord, us country boys, we do all right We can go on bailing hay all day long Humming to the tune of an old song And when the day is done,…

The Wolf Wailed On

Snow on the ground and gray everywhere The wolf stood still by the ragged old lair Waiting for a call he knew, would come So he kept staring at the sky with a prayer As sun went down in the wide old west The pink twilight kissed the sky so blue Oh the quiet of…

I’m Still the Same

It’s hard for me to say things you don’t know But I love you all the same like I did long ago And I wonder as I stare at the moon so blue If you ever sing an old tune that we knew Though it’s just a wish, I couldn’t give you more Just a…

That’s How It’s Been

Drapes in my room cast a shadow so deep Like the clouds so gray high up in the sky Like the way at night she used to weep When I’d say, ‘Love, it’s time to say goodbye’ Then she’d stand still with tears in her eyes As sad as an oak when the lone bird…

Somewhere in Time

The curtain came down when the play was done I found her alone beneath the summer sun As I sat back by the shade of an oak I knew inside that she was the one And I held her close to my heart so deep Till the stars up above all sang their rhyme In…

Lost in Love

He sits all alone from night till dawn With his worn out clothes and same old song And you’ll find him there when the night’s long gone Still lost in her love with no place to belong So I asked him tonight why he is so alone With eyes so lost and as dry as…

Fire and Rain

Then we sat around the fire After that long summer rain And as the evening began to tire I asked the old man again “Do you still dream of her at night After all this time has passed And do you ever wonder why About the days that didn’t last?” Said, “I don’t know why…

I Don’t Know Why

There’s a lonely shore that longs for water Like an old man who has lost a daughter And a captive bird too old to fly When the cage is open and sky’s hung high There’s an old house on a hill faraway By the river that runs in an old forgotten town “I’ll love you…

For You

My first poem for Shikha. Like a blink in the eye Like a lone wolf’s cry Like the hush of the night Like an old buzzard’s sight If I could travel in time’s own flight I will hold you near and be your knight But you’re like the glare of a star You’re like a…

A Lone Wolf Crying

There was a full moon in the chill of the night A lone wolf wailed somewhere in the west Was it the moon or the wolf’s eyes so bright? For even heavens looked down in their own quest Somewhere in the south By the sound of a sweet singing river Somewhere on a pine Where…
