The following link indicates that Texas is now past 109,000 signatures for its request for Secession from the Union of the United States.  Texas is now one of seven states that has pasted the 25,000 mark in submitting these requests to the White House.  Of course, the requests are as worthless as the petitions they are placed on to Obama’ White House:  http://news.msn.com/politics/seven-states-qualify-for-secession-response-from-white-house-3 

My wife and I proudly signed this on-line petition.  My wife was born in Collin County, Texas.  I have been an official resident of Texas since 1963 when I came to Dallas after serving four years of active duty in the United States Air Force.  We both feel that the next four years will bring on the further destruction of the United States as we have known her under the rule of Obama.  I fully support “peaceful and administrative withdrawal from the Union of the United States.”  We can only prayer that such a great day will become a reality.

I found myself at the apex of my life.
It was not a twelve step program that entered my mind
but a way to seek “Forgiveness.”
 
The list was long
and difficult to put together.
Many of the names were from many years ago.
 
A great amount of time was spent in finding addresses.
Many of the people of the list
were long dead.
 
It was a form letter I composed.
It began, “This letter is written to ask for your forgiveness
for any hurtful thing said or done to you in our relationship.
Please accept my apology for such actions on my part.”
 
There is now a large pile of letters with stamps on them
awaiting in a box to be mailed.
Some will be returned “undelivered.”
 
A large number of my addresses will never respond. 
A few will write back simply saying that the apology is accepted.
A greater number will write back listing my sins upon them
and close with black bitterness in their closing written words.
 
Then there will those who are the exceptional of heart.
In their return letters
they will also accept responsibility for any hurts
brought to the prior relationship. 
 
There will be a wonderful result in sending these letters.
I did seek “Forgiveness.”
Whether is was given or not
is not important.
 
What will be important
I will then know
who my neighbors in heaven
will be.

I broke your heart.
I know when the deed was done.
I knew then
as I know now
I was in love with you.
 
More afraid of failure
than giving myself to you.
I still can hear in my soul
the sound of your tears
on the tape from that day.
 
Two hours of tears and screaming
my name in agony.
I was the center of your agony
in my rejection of your love.
 
It has been twenty-five years
since that day.
A day never goes by
that my thoughts turn to you.
 
In my being
I now know
that the joy I knew with you then
will come again in my death
and hopefully with it
the joy of heaven.
 
If you are reading this
at this very moment
know this is one
who will always love you.

You and I have shared many words
these many months 
yet I feel my heart bound to yours.
Why I feel that way I am not sure.
 
I do know that in the words we shared
something very special stirred in my soul.
It was a love that I thought I no longer had.
 
Your words brought that to me.
It seems the memory of your kisses
were from another starlight memory.
 
A time when it was just you and I
wrapped in the warmth of each other’s flesh.
Try as hard as I can
I cannot bring back the details of that time.
we were one in the eternity
that was behind us. 
 
I do know one thing my love
if I eyes ever met in the future before us
all we have now
would fall from us
and leave but one union
of two souls deeply in love.
