I Tell Myself

Poem By Allen Keith Turner

I tell myself, it doesn't hurt,
when you choose not to see.
It makes me feel like dirt,
when you say 'Leave Me Be'!

I tell myself, I don't care,
When you completely ignore me.
It's your choice not to share
Any of your life with me!

I tell myself, I don't need you,
To make my life complete.
I know now that I do need you
Way more than you'll ever need me!

I tell myself these lies
& I'll try to move on,
The truth is, It's your love I will seek,
Till the day I am gone!

My Loving Wife

My friend, my love, light of my life
I am so lucky you are my wife.
U came to me in my darkest day
Like a light shining, Showing me the way.

Hard To Love(Who Isn'T There)

It's hard to love someone who isn't there
& you know they don't seem to care.
Never around when needed the most
Never around to try to get close.

Seperate Paths

I did not choose the seperate paths
That led our hearts away.
When that fork came in the road
I did not have a say.

Missing You

My beautiful daughter, where did the time go?
I have been missing you alot & I do love you so.
In & out of your life, I just want to say,
If you give me a chance, I am here to stay.


A one night rendezvous so very long ago
A child came into the world, I didn't get to know
You took from me precious time, that I can never get back
What did I ever do to deserve treatment like that?

This Lonely Road

Down this lonely road
Through life, I wander around.
Searching for someone,
Who doesn't want to be found.
