As a writer, we always like to think we can write almost anything.

But, in the grand scheme of things, maybe we’re just cut out for whatever area we like to think we specialize in.

As a former photojournalist and columnist, I would like to think I was pretty good, but I had an itch.  An itch to try my hand at some poetry, which I have been writing for a long, long time … and now, well, I am posting what I would like to think could be the words to a country song.

I have no idea whatsoever how songs are formatted, so for the songwriters out there, please bear with me.

So, without further adieu, here it is, my first attempt as a songwriter.  It’s OK if you comment, just be gentle.

The Best of Him
