My Request

Poem By Danny Taylor

When my eyes close
And I’m laid to rest
And pounds of dirt
Sit on top of my chest
When my simple existence
Is thriving no more
And my soul is at peace
Like the waves on the shore
When I sleep for the last time
If white light I see
I hope that the angels
Are waiting for me
For if God decides
That it’s my time to go
If I must die with pain
Then let it be so
And my only request
Through my joy and my strife
Is that all of my pain
Reflects all of my life

A Canine's Poem

I hear him whine at two A.M
Scratching and pushing on my door
I have no choice but to invite him in
And I know he won’t sleep on my floor


I loathe the empty chair where she once sat,
The wood and cushion that smile the empty smile,
I can only sit beside the window now,

Who Are You?

Tell me; let me know your secret
Whisper to me in my ear
What is it that makes you crazy?
What gives you the greatest fear?


On the pages I am turning,
Through my mind these thoughts are burning,
Like a little child learning,
Never lost for things to say.

Dad's Poem

You taught me how to tie my shoes
And that the world was round and vast
You taught me how to throw a ball
And to learn from troubled past
