When I hear this sound that awakens me, intimidating its way into my cloistered night, I write…




… I reflect the feelings of yesterday.

I was young and had no dismay.

School and other things were in my mind;

Not the sadness that today I find.

My heart now is filled with sorrow,

Thinking what future brings me tomorrow!

… Yesterday’s thoughts make me feel-

A sadness that is hard to deal.

I think of the one who possessed my heart!

Our destiny ruled us to be apart!


… I can’t forget that handsome face,

Nor how he took his life for my disgrace.

I said my farewell with desperate rave,

Since I wasn’t allowed to say it at his grave!

… That night moon had a wan light.

My face reflected a dark shadow of fright.

I stood in deadly silence to hear-

An emphasizing word about my dear!


But no one knew, no one did care-

That we had promised each other to pair,

That we did not want to part;

Such was our love, so certain in heart!

… Now I think of those limited days;

How sweetly they burned me with blaze.

Hard days have come, hard days have gone!

And I always for those days long!

He is gone and all I have his memories.

I am painfully alive, he is deadly at ease!! …

I am a professor, a poet, an author, and an immigrant. I am the survival of many political and economical hardship. As a political immigrant, it took me a long time to master the English language and to come to terms that I can never see my family again. "THE PARTING FROM MY FAMILY WAS THE BEGINNING OF A FRIENDSHIP THAN THE END OF OUR FRIDAYS!" My autobiography, "THE RAIN STOPS IN TEXAS" was published in 1997 by Eakin Press. It can be found in Amazon. As Ernest Hemingway says, write about something you know, most of my novels are about cultural difference of the old and new and American style of living compare to my home country. My poetry are in all forms. I write as they come to me. My first draft is always my last draft. "THIS IS MY WORLD, WELCOME!" "THANK YOU FOR BEING HERE!"
