Years ago when I was sharing some of my poems with friends, a young lady asked me, "Is this what you actually think or just words that you write because they go good together?" The answer was to become the title to this book. These are my personal "THOUGHTS" about the places and people that have touched my life. My "FEELINGS" about those I've loved and was fortunate enough to have had them grace me with their love. And of the "TEARS" we all must cry throughout our lives, and some still do. I share these with you, a total stranger, not so much that you may know me better. But with hopes that you may get to know yourself better. That they might bring reflections on your own life, so that you might fully appreciate those around you ad with hopes they bring understanding of how precious life really is and how fragile love can be.
