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

… All alone I sit in the dark.

Spinning the dial of radio sharp and spark.

Searching for a woman’s voice-

To sing me a lullaby, so I rejoice.

A soothing gentle voice-

To take away my gloom…

… Don’t try to know how I ended up this way.

It is so silent here night and day.

I must here a woman’s voice in this room,

A sweet, gentle voice in my doom.

In this lonely room I call it my tome;

To take away my gloom…


… A voice that stirs my soul.

A voice that makes me whole.

A voice that forever stay.

It comes and never slay.

A soothing voice that never betray;

To take away my gloom…

… The darkness inside has no end.

A shining light is my trend.

A woman’s voice talking about love;

A true love beyond and above.

A soulful voice about love,

To take away my gloom…

… Just to move my nights move along.

Not to keep loneliness crashing her song.

Could I hear mom’s voice in this lonely room,

Strong, comforting, caring, not a doom?

Cradle me like when I was in your womb;

To take away my gloom!! …

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!"
