Have I Told You Lately?

This poem is from Autumn Leaves:


Did I say, “I love you?”

Have I told you what’s in my heart?

In my mind, I’ve thought of countless ways to do it…

This knowledge to impart.


Do you see my lips moving?

Just as my heart commands.

Can I express it adequately?

Will you understand?


I know I must have done it

At least a thousand times.

Haven’t I told you daily,

Or is it all just in my mind?


Maybe then I just can’t say it,

Or express my feelings clear,

Then let me try to write it down,

I love you so much, my dear.

I was born in a small town in southern Mississippi, but I have traveled the world and completed a career in the U.S. Air Force. I am always exploring and learning new things. From the time I was a young man, I always had the desire to write. With my writing, I want the reader to know that I wish to light a candle in the darkness and hopefully enable others to enjoy life more.
