FOR VALENTINE’S DAY

Sometimes a poem requires reposting. This was written for Valentine's Day and was published in Volume 3 "Finding Love." It remains one of my favorites. The photo is courtesy of my friend Cornelia Fischer. Love awakens me  Holds me while I sleep Nourishes my days And eases my soul It renews my life Encourages my [...]

“Learning to Live Again” is nearing publication… Here are some RANDOM THOUGHTS from the book

There is not a day that goes by When I'm not thinking about others And I suppose it will remain that way As the pain has never really left ***************************** There is not a day that goes by When I'm not aware of this insidious disease That has invaded my body And changed everything *************************** [...]

LOVE

Learning to Live Again is my biggest project and I've yet to see its end. Here again is a poem from that unfinished and unpublished work. I've always felt That life is about love and fear And right now I live in fear And without love I know that I am loved But I can't [...]

I Never Saw it Coming (Song Lyrics) | SL Kaufman

I never saw it coming  After all those years And now my guitar's strumming While I wipe away my tears I don't know how I'll make it Without her by my side And though I'll try to fake it My soul is opened wide CHORUS: Why now...why me How the hell...I didn't see Took me [...]

From Learning to Live Again (Unpublished)

I continue to be encouraged By the responses I'm getting To my poetry page On Facebook Perhaps it is merely My ego talking But the comments and likes Keep pouring in Of course I'm trying to sell books And so far success is elusive But I have created a brand There is a growing circle [...]

From Learning to Live Again (unpublished 2017)

I'm still searching  For answers To unasked questions And continued confusions Crossroads again And always As I enter new Horizons I'm unwilling to let go Of hopes and dreams By settling for the safety Of comfortable surroundings At least until I know That what I truly deserve Is not within my reach As this journey [...]
