Throughout my life, I have kept everything I've ever written in one cardboard box. Its strength and resiliency I compare to the human heart, an amazing vessel for love, loss, grief, passion and ecstasy. Beginning with my first and earliest writings, the book continues to reveal the journey of my life and soul, ending with my most current, and passionate, poems. I hope you, the reader, finds inside this book an enduring story of all the human heart can withstand and overcome. Enjoy.
