THE BIRTH OF A POET

Born from pain and feelings of hurt
of a life that was not worth living
and a love that was not given.

born of suffering of peoples hearts
and agonies of children's tears
of a world that did not seem to care
and hope that was not there.

born from a tear and a heart
as feelings gave birth to tears
and tears awoke the soul to see
the heart it had felt for thee.

born of a time that God had planned
to let me see the right of way
that I may know not all is bad.

share the love that I may have.

born of a need to know myself
share what I've have come to know
that I may see your heart aglow.

with it all the things you feel
even if its pain and tears.

for this is what a Poet does
awakes your heart and soul to see
you are here indeed.

to feel all the pain and love
is to awaken the heart in you
maybe The Birth of a Poet too.

Dedicated to Jeannett Lynn

A Poet’s Quill

My Quill is dying

My Blotter’s wet

My Tears are falling

My words regret

My Heart is hurting

My Feeling jest

My Soul is searching

For Eternal rest.

My Quill has spoken

These immortal words

The strokes

I have written

Will be the last words

My Quill is gone

Though I rest

I still think,

of the Poet’s Quest.

To find the words

That make us best.

Dedicated to
all Poets Past & Present

A Poeatreeman

“The Quill will be the Poet’s Soul”
“Immortalize in Every Word!”

A Quill’s Soul

The Quill will Speak

The Ink will flow

The Word well written

As Truth will know

The Blotter absorbs

The Spirit's Essence's

Lines are flowing

Through Heart and Soul

The Quill will follow

The Poet's Hand.

Remembering!

It will Speak;

At God's Command.

A POET'S TEARS

God
is my companion

Loneliness
is my company

Sorrow
is my tears

Care
is my heart

Hope
is my way
to dream

Time
is my hour,
all came to me

Soul
is my being,
looking to see

Darkness
is pity
trying
to cover me

God
was there
to let me know

I am here
to write these words

Knowing
I am loved by He.

A Poeatreeman

My tears wrote this
love was the ink
God was my strength,
holding me,
when I was not.

POET'S PLACE

Poet's place I like to be
So peaceful and serene

Where God I feel
So comforting to me

Where nature's dream
Is so beautiful to see

Where time stands still
To hold me there

A place I want to see

Where dreams are real
Life has cares

Where I can go
Not feel pain

A dream I have not seen

Where you and I
Can walk in hand

To see what God has done

A dream he gave to you and I

For He gave to us His son..

A Poeatreeman
A Tribute To Larry Beegle
In Memory of a Dear Friend
May He only take
God's Highways
and be safe Forever.

WISDOM FROM A POEATREEMAN


Expect Nothing
Everything
Will Come..

Take One Day
To Love
Nothing
Will Be Lost..

Give Not
What You Have,
Those Which
You Don't..

Give Love
Heart,
Until You
Feel TEARS Both..

When Your
Glass is Full
Love
It All
The More..

Don't Take
From Love
Give Care
Instead..

Hold
Your Hearts,
As You
Would
Your Child..

For What
You
Have Inside,
Will Grow
To Touch
The Sky

If You
Let it Grow
To God ,

Always
Keep
His
Heart...

For His is All

I Am Only A Penmen
Writing To God.

A POET'S DREAM

I Want To Help
Feed Heart and Soul
For what I don't have
I hope
I Can Give what I do

A POET'S DREAM
To lets You Feel
Heart and Soul
Making You Feel
Life is Swell

Even
if it is Hard Too Tell

Letting You Reach
Beyond Yourself
Finding
There is More To See

Letting
You Know
The Pain You Bear
Is Carried by You

Unless
You want to
Share IT with God
Carry Him with Love

Letting
You Know
There is Soul in You
Needing
To Find its Heart

To Awaken
All that is Asleep
With All
You Brought to Bear

To Face
All Things
To Look Within
Sharing with God

Letting
You Know
When Both are Fed
When
Heart Has Come
To Soul

Drank
the Tears of Life
The Waters
Of My Soul

That Fills
My Heart with God.

A Poeatreeman

I Cannot Feed
Your Heart and Soul
Unless
You Take My Words
in Heart.

A Little Tear
Will Make it Go Down
I Hope
it is Not Hard to Swallow.

A POEM FOR A PRINCE

I think about; what I can give you
words I only have

I can write in gold or sliver
I'll write with love instead

I think about the things we shared
found treasures beyond compare

I know the words I give you
Are Treasures from the heart

For all that I can give you
Is what we feel inside

For all God gave us
Lets share the earth with love.

A Poeatreeman

God speed!
God Willing,
May you, Find Peace

Lighten your Heart,
For The World ,is Bare
You Must, Carry Love.

Written For and Dedicated To
His Highness
Prince Abdvllah Mohammed Bin Saud Alkabeir

SHARING

I am not Interested
In Money,
Not Interested, in Fame
I am Interested
In Sharing,
What God, Gave me.

My Poetry,
My Heart,
My Love,
My Pain,
All in my Words,
For God Gave
Me, A Hand.

Written with Life,
As He Watched,
Over me
Shared with my Heart,
Nourished, by Pain.

Bled From My Heart
As Love Came in
God Healed my Heart
When
He Touched me, Within..

A Poeatreeman

When I am By myself,
God is With me
When I am Alone,
I Left Him..

A POEM

I cannot stop for People,
Who do not want to hear

I still must go on,
For God is Here to Hear

These words I write,
Are not for One to feel

They are for All who care,
If People do not want to Hear.

God is there
to listen to Me

Hope is My way
to get through it

Love will show itself
to Me

Faith is what I need
to Believe

When all comes down to it

My Poem
is My Words To God

I Say To Him That He is Loved

I say To You ,
My Poem
is My Gift of Love.

A THOUGHT!

If I am the only One
who walks the Path

I still need to find its end

If I am the only One
who hears the words

I still must listen to it all

For it will echo back again

If I am to be Myself,
I must do what God has said

If I am to do the Best,
I must take the course He Set

Dedicated to Cambria

A Poeatreeman

If I am a Poet ,
I hope God is at My Right Hand

If anyone will hear Me
He will understand

If I am Great or Small,
It is because He Gave Me All

If I am His Pen,
I Hope The Words
Will Not Be Wrong

If I am to be Myself,
I must use
The Gift God Has Given

A POEATREEMAN'S THANKS

I speak with my words
For I have not much time
To say them

I speak from the Heart
For this is where
My words come from

I Thank God
For He allowed me
To say them
I Thank You
For listening

My words
May not find a place
in you
Yet my thoughts,
Have entered in

If you find
one little care
My Heart
Will have come in

If you feel a tear
you will know
God is near

If I touched
Your Heart
You will know
Love was there

If you read my words
you will know
I am there

Peace comes
not by War,
but a Heart
Close to God

It is not easy
going the right way
I have tried the other,
Found
I was going no where

The day is longer
When you have no direction

It is not any shorter
When you are trying
To find the right way

I know where I am Today
and hope
To be Tomorrow

I cannot prove God,
I am not even sure
I am good

Yet this is no reason
not to try
It is better to try
Let God decide
Whose is good

Those who believe
He is not
There is a chance
you will believe

For if He
is not Here
believe
you are not too.

A Poeatreeman

It is not with Computer or Pen I Write
It is Heart and Tears, that Write the Words
The Ink is My Soul The Scroll My Life
For the Words Written, is each Day of Life
Open Your Heart and All Can Come in
You Have One Time To Take it All in

A LITTLE POEM

I sent you
my heart

and got a bill

How can
I contribute

more
than I did?

You asked
for money

yet it's
my heart I gave

How do I offer

what my heart
wants to give?

I hope
this Little Poem

Will help
you both through

For I am
A Poeatreeman

Who has
wheels like you

Don't
take it to heart

I don't mean
to be cruel

For it's what
God Gave me

That I give to you..

A THOUGHT!

I am what
He made me

I am all of what
I made myself

I am the sorrows
and the pains

I am the tears
and cares of God

I am loved
because of Him

I have wheels
He did not make

He understands
my heartaches

He's not afraid
to be seen with me

I'm not afraid
to walk with He

He holds my wheels
right on the ground

It's not time
to fly above

For when you do,
you'll need no chair

For I
will carry you above.

DEDICATED TO CHRISTOPHER

A Poeatreeman

I understand
your need

To help
spinal causes

I hope you
understand mine

To help
Humanity find love

We both
have our causes

I hope
mine is love

I'll ask God
to help you

Though
it must be with love.
