The Old Man Here

Updated: Apr 8, 2019

Don’t see the old man here,

With these pills not a beer.

Remember way back when,

I said, “Let’s do that again!”

I don’t want you to cry,

On the day that I die.

Don’t see an old man here,

Know: I lived life without fear.


Don’t let a tear fall today,

Do not fear for my fate.

Don’t cry on the morrow,

When I see God’s golden gate.

Live life as I did,

Dance to life’s every tune.

Toast to me up above,

As I watch from the moon.


Don’t see the old man here,

And let the past disappear.

Reminisce youthful play,

Of nights turned into day.

Please host a party for me,

Solute a spirit who’s free.

Raise commotion I’ll hear,

Know: I’m not an old man up here.


Don’t let a tear fall today,

Going home’s not goodbye.

Don’t cry on the morrow,

As I gain my wings to fly.

I’ll miss you most my dear friend,

Recall our time way back when.

Live your life full for me,

Until we meet here again.


Don’t see the old man here,

My friend, youth’s drawing near.

Dedicated to the most amazing man.

All my love,

Someone Broken Like Me In days long ago, My love used to flow. I would gift it away, A high cost to pay. Life’s beaten me down. I’m broken and bound. Afraid to be hurt, I’m braced and alert. ~ I’m not

I am from a state of sadness, an era of abuse, and eyes filled with fear. I’ve journeyed to forgiveness, a state of happiness, and vision that is clear. I’ve turmoiled in anger, a state of regret, and
