Just Being You

Poem By Robert Edgar Burns

Thank you my darling
For just being you,
For lifting my spirits
When I'm deepest blue.

Thank you my angel
For being nearby,
When I need a shoulder
To lean on or cry.

Thanks to your sweet words
That come by my way,
Which keep me from stumbling
Or going astray.

Thank you for sharing
My fears and my strife,
And for making me care to
Go on with my life.

Thank you honey for the days
That we've shared.
For nursing me healthy
With your patient sweet care.

Thank you my Gem.
Our love's always new.
And once again thank you,
For just being YOU!

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.
