Heart And Soul

Poem By Robert Edgar Burns

They talk about the love there is
Inside two lovers hearts.
And how they promise not to leave,
Or ever stray apart.

I send these words to all my friends
That’s how I show my love.
For love needs let out to soar
Higher than the clouds above!

I hope that they all realize,
That money can not buy,
What comes from deep within my heart,
Will often makes me cry.

I try to write my feelings down,
In words they’ll understand.
So that when they read these words,
They’ll see the essence of this man.

And if they can’t
They’ll never see,
The depth of love
That flows through me.

If you do not want to hear me,
You may even think these words droll.
Please remember these words came,
From within my heart and soul!

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!

Had I Never!

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.


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.
