Glen’s Poetry

My Angel

My mom is my angel.
She believed in me
and always wanted the best for me.
Mom took me back and forth to school
no matter how far it was.
She knew that I could learn.
I think about her every day.
I miss my angel.


I am warm and comfortable,
relaxing after a nice swim.
I hear the wind blowing
across the water.
The blue sky has
changed to orange,
framing curved palm trees.
I think of my mom,
missing her a lot.

A Circle of Love

My wife Sandy
the love of my life,
makes me feel great.
Our adopted sister
and best friend Emily,
with her awesome dog,
make me feel special.
We are a true family,
a circle of love.

My Mother

My mother inspired me to walk again,
to compete in Special Olympics.
We would go places and do things.
She loved me unconditionally.
I was devastated when she died.
I still miss her.

Sunny Days

The fresh smell of plants,
flowers and trees.
Animals all about.
Cool wind blowing
on sunny days,
takes the stress away.
