Tribute to two wonderful people

My tribute to two wonderful guys

I know I’ve said it all before
But I must tell you again
About a man called John Sherman
Maybe I write in vain
But I must tell the world about
The two guys in my life
Who I’ll put on a pedestal
John and his lovely wife

He don’t come from religion
Nor any beliefs at all
He’s more like a Psychologist
His approach is wonderful
To don’t claim to be a Guru
He’s just a humble man
Yet he will do most anything
To help you if he can.

Once I suffered oh, so much
With anxiety and fear
I hated me, the whole damned world
My head was never clear
My wife was set to leave me
My kids thought me so low
All because of a foolish war
So lonely I did grow.

Then John he showed me just one act
And said ‘That’s it, that’s all!’
And I just listened to the man
Though I am not a fool
And now It’s four years later
And my heart is filled with bliss
There’s nothing could destroy it
That’s just the way it is.

No more the fear of life is here
No more the fear of death
No more that awful greyness
No more I feel bereft
Every day to me right now
Is another brand new day
As life becomes more beautiful
In every kind of way.



I know I talk about john a lot, don't want to bore anyone, but what I gained from him was absolutely phenomenal, and my main reason for joining poetry groups was so people might know of him...Peter

    I sure wish I had a guy like this to go see because I too am filled sometimes with dread, mostly when I wake up first thing in the morning. I know I would do better if my hubbie found a good job. this was a very nice tribute to this man and to his wife.

    Andrea, I only know this man from his site on the web; I just done what he told me; I was getting so hard to live with. he is on 'www.justonelook.org' he is well worth listening to, and costs absolutely nothing. Thanks for your comments...Peter

    It's only natural to write about someone who has had such a tremendous impact on your life, Peter. I'm so glad you got the help you needed to make it trough....So, where does this guy live? I could use a visit! ;) Hugs

    John And Carla Sherman, at 'www.just one look .org' that's where you get in touch with Him Eileen. He done wonders for me, after forty years of seeking help and failing; I now am the happiest man alive. Thanks heaps for your comments...Peter
