I Never Had A Butterfly Collection & 3 other poems by G David Schwartz

I Never Had A Butterfly Collection

I never had a butter fly collection
They’re just fancy bugs
Just as evil as all the others
With less that a good shoulder shrug

The Most Beautiful Girl I’ve Ever Seen

The most beautiful girl I’ve ever seen was a lot older than a teen.
She was so kind and sweet with a smile which cant be beat
She had eyes which gave up a smile
And she had a face which I’d stare at a while
She was kind
And her voices was fine
And I am always proud
That she stayed mine.

I’m Proud To Be A Vet

I’m proud to be a vet
I’m proud I served in The Vietnam
Era and am so happy that
To Nam I never went
I had a chance once
When my C.O extended a request
But I proudly told him
I was to be discharged
And didn’t want to do to my death.

With The Last Breath I Have

With the last breath I have
I hope I cab say it right
“I love you, honey,”
Not “What for dinner tonight.”
