Writing poetry has always been one of my favorite hobbies. After reading poems early on by the likes of William Shakespeare, Edgar Allan Poe, and Langston Hughes, just to name a few, I became fascinated with the art. I wanted the world to read my material with hopes, they'd find mine entertaining as well. I'm not sure how far I can go with this, but as long as I continue to live, I will always ... more »

Bernard Snyder Poems
The love songs I used to sing for you now just seem like shattered words, the white doves that followed us along the beaches now seem like ordinary birds,
'Why I Love You'
I love you because you're the other half that makes me whole, when we're apart I feel helpless and out of control,
'Behind The Smile'
I've always known she was taken but something about her made me keep trying, I used to flatter her with sweet pleasantries knowing she would read between the lines,
'Swimming With A Shark'
She tried to warn me right from the start, she said she had a friend that had stolen her heart,
Sometimes we sort through the shattered pieces with hopes of finding something still intact, despite the excruciating pain we went through, we always find ourselves looking back,
'A Lonely Rose'
Something must've happened over time no one seem to ever ask for me, maybe I've lost my significance or the world's going through a catastrophe,
The Wind Beneath My Wings
When my time here on earth expires I won't have any regrets, because by having met you I was finally given the opportunity to know what
I'm The One For You'
I will always stand by your side even if the whole world was against you, I would plant you a garden of roses if I thought it would convince you,
They get started by certain people that run their mouths without the facts, they take a story they've overheard and begin to add to it or subtract,
</>I've sailed around the world twice
They're gone but never forgotten abandoned out at sea, some severely beaten by past storms others stuck in misery,
'Hold My Hand'
I just want to say 'thank you', Lord and know that I truly understand, how lost I would've been if you weren't holding my hand,
'Eyes Wide Shut'

The love songs I used to sing for you
now just seem like shattered words,
the white doves that followed us along the beaches
now seem like ordinary birds,
the sunshine doesn't seem as bright anymore
the moonlight seem to have lost it's glow,
the ocean I once thought was so smooth and romantic
now has an unusual flow,
the raindrops we used to listen to
no longer has that pleasant tone,
nothing seems to be what it used to
since you've been gone,
I've tried everything I could think of
but nothing's the same without you
I just want to enjoy the ...
