Simple Words is a book of plain-spoken poems that tell stories of fun, romance, fantasies, sadness, and fear. Visualization of war can be seen in "Like A Soldier," even though no action is mentioned. "Daddy" evokes feelings of separation, despair, and loneliness. Romantic poems such as "I Love You" allow the reader to feel the joy of two people reuniting after being apart. There is a sense of security in the arms of your loved one. "The Fair" tells of fun on the midway as you visualize the lights, hear the noise, and feel the sticky cotton candy. "Tomorrow" makes us realize what an Alzheimer's patient experiences. Even though the patient may not recognize us, he or she still recognize a friend.
