    My friend, for all of my many youthful mistakes that one was the worst one that I ever made.
    To cheat and do wrong on her cost me dearly. Some mistakes one never forgets...
    And yes, I paid a heavy price..-God bless..

    When Sweet And Soft Morn No Longer Calls Out

    When heart is broken, ocean is drained
    All becomes sad-blue, all life is stained
    Dawn brings epic sorrows, no real relief
    Ripped and torn, shattered some beliefs
    Midnight moon casts down that terrible blue
    Everything sad even shining new.

    When heart is broken, ocean is drained
    All becomes sad-blue, all life is stained

    When sweet and soft morn no longer calls out
    And life cries for hope, with dark mourning shout
    Hours flow forth like whimpering aches of day
    All the green blades of grass seem morbid gray
    Hurt promises to let other shoe drop
    And mind wonders shall this agony stop.

    Sonnet

    Born from a poet's heart that has seen too much sorrow and loss.
    Dedicated to those lost. And to my dear friend Connie Marcum.
    I truly think she would have loved this one.
    As she saw the merits in sad, dark and truth in life should be represented in poetry.

    Robert,
    I hadn't read any of your poetry for a few months, I really love this one.

    Hurry destiny cries it is too late,
    Strolling deep within, horrific the sounds
    So strangely pungent the circling winds
    In distant valleys, baying of the hounds-
    I fear what that hideous sign portends.
    Now so afraid, through weeping years I trod
    Yet pushed, ever onward, I dare tread
    My shield, simply faith in Light and my God
    And bushels of truth, to me, life has fed
    I pray for salvation of divine light
    Blessed ending of this courageous flight.
