Poet Paula Graham shares poems of romance, family, faith and patriotism in her new collection, Poems Forever (published by AuthorHouse). Graham’s poems encourage readers to become inspired and express their feelings.
“My adventure and love of poetry began when I was a small child in school, where I studied the many types and styles of poetry,” says Graham. “I learned to recite poetry about romance, nature and history.”
Graham’s poems about all aspects of life allow readers to connect on a personal level. Poems such as “A Magic Moment,” “Golden Wedding Day” and “Just A Man” are written with great emotion and truth.
The collection of patriotic poems reflects the love of country, love of family and the hopes and fears of soldiers and their families. “An American Soldier,” is a poem about a boy growing into a man, a portion of which follows:
…He’ll fight to preserve freedom
And to liberate people everywhere.
He sacrifices a lot for you and I.
He leaves his family for long periods of time.
When he bids them good-bye,
He doesn’t know if he’ll see them again.
He’s an American soldier standing tall and proud
With his shoulders back and his head held high.
He’s ready to go where duty calls.
He’s ready to fight and die.
Graham has a passion for life. Poems Forever inspires readers to listen to their hearts and take nothing in life for granted.
