Now I See

Poem By Ray Hansell

Just to walk in the morning sun
To smell the claen fresh air
We take so much for granted
Living life without much care

Never taking the time
To truly appreciate
The beauty that surrounds us
Until life is getting late

That seems to be when we notice
All the beauty that we see
I was one of those people
Until life almost ended for me

But now that I've been given
A new lease on life
I enjoy the beauty around me
Without ever thinking twice

A Child's World

Welcome to my world
Some say it's a simple place
Well that may be so
But at least, there's always a smile on my face

A Cheater Caught

You took off with him
Seeking something new
Little did you know
The things that he would do to you

A Contented Mother

It seems for so many years
I've lived my life for someone else
I put my feelings and needs
Away somewhere on a shelf


Sad eyes
Sad heart
Sad days
When apart

One Should Never Feel

A man all alone
No one to hold
Existing in a place
That's lonely and cold

No One Really Knows

I don't look to the future
Because the future is not mine
I live each and every day
One day at a time
