Restlessness wraps me in her arms
Uncertainty draws me near
Indecisiveness whispers in my ear
“How does it feel to taste the fear?”
Not really knowing how I arrived here
Where the shadows are closing in
I can feel its weight crushing me
Yes, the time has come to pay the price
Shivers run down my spine
Having never thought about it twice
Some believe the fear has broken me
They believe my world destroyed
There is nothing further from the truth
This is merely pain I cannot avoid
The darkness embraces and welcomes me
Closing my eyes I will wait for the Sun
Death holds no power you see
Passing from life is merely the beginning
Restlessness comes to wrap you in her arms
Uncertainty will draw you close
Indecisiveness will whisper softly in your ear
“How does it feel to taste the fear”
What will you do when darkness comes?
How will you face the coming end?
Shivers will run up your spine
You can’t avoid the pain
Or Death’s sweet embrace

It is all I have to give
Would that I had more
More of life
More of love
More to give
If it were sooner
Rather than later
Perhaps there would be more
More of me
More to share
For me, it is too late
For second chances
Let alone third or fourth
It was all I had
All that I could give
Give it I did
Without a second thought
Let alone a third or fourth
On that you have my word
My life, my love,
That is all that’s left to give

A book worth reading!
The poetry in this book can really make you feel, the emotions portrayed really comes out. You can feel his love for his wife and the pain he has experienced in life. In the book you will read bits and pieces of the author's life so you get a glimpse into who he is that makes you want more of his story.
Some of them I read over and over, getting something different each time, which is really amazing to me.
I received this book as a gift from a friend of the author. It is the only book I own. I was never much of a reader growing up and have never bought a book in my 50 plus years, let alone read one all the way through. When I am reading his poetry I find myself blocking out the world around me. It's something I never expected. I have laughed and cried while reading them. I can't really explain the effect it has on me, other than to say that it takes me away and I feel things I haven't felt before. I keep it on my nightstand and read one or two almost every night before going to sleep. I recommend this book to anyone that likes poetry, and even to those who think they don't, like me before I started reading it.
I won this book in a recent Goodreads First Reads giveaway.
I very rarely read poetry, as it usually doesn't hold my interest. This book is one of a very few that I have enjoyed and kept my interest until the end. I shall be keeping this book on my shelf to read again sometime. Recommended.
It was amazing!
A wonderful collection of poems that held my interest. I would really recommend.
