Had I Never!

Poem By Robert Edgar Burns

If I had never known your name,
I would have loved you just the same.
Had I not gazed into your eyes,
I still would have been tantalized.

Had I never held your hand,
I would have dreamed I was your man.
Had I never felt your touch,
I would have loved you very much.

Had our lips dear never met,
I’d fantasize that mine were wet,
With kisses that you’d give to me,
When I turn out lights to sleep.

I thank the Lord that Never’s not,
My dreams came true, for I’ve got,
The greatest blessing in the world.
The blessing is you are my girl.

Our love grows stronger every year,
No outside force could sever.
I know about the day we met,
I’d have loved you even had I never!

Kathie My Love, And I

Like the rising of the morning sun
Across the eastern sky,
Is each new day for love to bloom,
Between KATHIE my love, and I.

The Front Porch Swing!

Sitting on the front porch swing
The two of us feeling high.
Watching horses in the meadow,
My country girl and I.


I want to write a masterpiece,
And tell the world of you.
I’ll use the sky for parchment,
And it never will be through.

Native Tongue!

My native tongue is African,
Though I am American white.
I took it from his mouth tonight.
It was a cannibals delight!


I saw the note taped to the easy chair
In the living room of my house.
I got out of bed to retrieve that note
But it was a tissue standing in a kleenex box.
