IN MY THOUGHTS

by thereluctantpoet

By Charles Robert Lindholm

I’ve been holding you
in my thoughts all day
like I used to do
with my girls
at the playground

my eyes were always
watching them
that’s where my heart was
they are part of me
family
loved ones

By Charles Robert Lindholm

I AM NOT A POET
I AM JUST A SCRIBE

WHAT REMAINS

by thereluctantpoet

Charles R. Lindholm

WHAT REMAINS OF ME
WOULD THE WORLD WANT TO SEE

NOT BELIEVING IN THE TRUTH
BUT STILL HE’S FORCED TO WRITE

A TIDBIT OF AN INSIGHT HERE
OR AN INSPIRATION THERE
A FUNNY THOUGHT, AN INNER FEAR
A DREAM OF LOVE OR A SIMPLE JOY
