Yesteryear's Memories

I remember the days,
Of teenage years,
Hanging out at sweet shops,
'57 Chevys and frequent tears.

The melodies of favorite tunes,
Heartthrobs and secret idol dreams,
Reality comes crushing in,
Thoughts create vocal screams.

Listening to the king of rock’s,
Precious melodious sounds,
Wafting through the air,
Teeny boppers falling to the ground.

I could forever listen to the songs,
Sung by Elvis throughout the years,
Wonderful memories quickly replace,
The thorns wrought of aging fears.

Sing to me my king of pop,
Inside my soul your music rocks
Once again I now stand,
Clad in Poodle skirts and booby socks.

An Hour With You

Thank You So Much Gayle,
For This Special Poem


Don't Be Cruel

You know I can be found
sitting home all alone
If you can't come around
at least please telephone
Don't be cruel to a heart that's true.

Baby, if I made you mad
for something I might have said
Please, let's forget the past
the future looks bright ahead
Don't be cruel to a heart that's true
I don't want no other love
Baby it's just you I'm thinking of.

Don't stop thinking of me
don't make me feel this way
Come on over here and love me
you know what I want you to say
Don't be cruel to a heart that's true
Why should we be apart
I really love you baby, cross my heart.

Let's walk up to the preacher
and let us say I do
Then you'll know you'll have me
and I'll know that I'll have you
Don't be cruel to a heart that's true
I don't want no other love
Baby it's just you I'm thinking of.

Don't be cruel to a heart that's true
Don't be cruel to a heart that's true
I don't want no other love
Baby it's just you I'm thinking of.
