Happy New years.

George birthday 008

The holidays need to be for the family and friends. We never know when it the last goodbye. I like the phrase “Until we meet again.”  I make one goal each year. To be kind to the family and unlimited patience. Hard to do. Be safe and have fun. I hope great success to everyone in the coming year. Thank you for reading and giving me reasons to keep writing.

If I knew.

A Poem by Coyote Poetry


We learn too late to be quiet. Anger and violence leads only to more pain and sadness.


  If I knew

If I knew.
I would of  loved more and said less.

Sweet memories slip into my mind of us.
Two people loving and holding tight like it was our last moment.

I remember walking  hand in  hand with you.
On lonely beaches.
Never more happy.

The sweet times are rare now.

Eyes of youth had faded away with life burdens and losses.

I look into the mirror and see a tire man.

I wish to go back and feel again.
To hunger for sweet  kisses and love til the morning light.

Walk down the naked beaches of Monterey coast.
In a mist of silence with a gentle hand in mine.

I didn’t know laughter and dreams would fade away.

If I knew I would of try to stop time.

Hold you like you were my last breath.
