With Thanks

I write, I write, I write

The words have flowed
 for twenty years,
But when it came time
to share my story
I would start feeling
nervous full of fear.

Everything I ever touched
Would always fall apart,
I always had a complex
I didn't think
I was very smart.

I turned to drugs and
alcohol a
t such a very
early age,
To overcome
the fears I had

And control my
adolescent rage.

On my road to recovery
Sitting down with
pen in hand,
I searched to
find the answers, s
ee if I
could find the man.

Along that road to
I discovered I
could write a poem,

I put on paper all the pain
I felt,
then the path was
clearly shown.

I finally felt like I needed
to share, a
ll the poems
that I had in my head,

I reached out to people
I thought would help me

But I was discouraged
with what they said.

So I got on my knees
and I prayed out loud

And then I searched
on the internet a
nd low
and behold my prayers
were answered a
nd she
went by the name of Pat.

She helped me conquer
a fear I had, s
he said yes
when the others said no
nd now the world can see
my words
and watch my
You tube video show.

Thank you Pat for the help
you gave, n
ow the world
may take a look a
nd see
the magic you helped me
display, i
nside my very
first book....
Richard W. Lamp

Today I got

a great surprise,

Coming out the blue

to open my eyes,

A "Thank You" Card

with the poem below,

That I think wonderful

I just wanted to show,



The thanks

were for publishing

Her Daddy's

poetic book of muse,

Which she says

makes her proud

Each time she

get's it to peruse.

What better reward

could there ever be,

Than your Kids

reading words

coming from thee,

Words to treasure

their whole life through,

Words to guide them

when you're gone too!

 So receiving this gift

from a young lady who,

I have never met

means much I tell you,

This sort of payment

is my greatest reward,

It costs nothing,

 but to buy it?

No-one can afford!






GOD put us together

for many reasons

Now we’ve been together

for a few seasons.

From beginning,

you were real special to me

You brought out my best

poetry that all see


And I cherish you for

you were my mentor

I looked up to you

as a great inventor

Your challenges brought

out the best I did write

I love you for what you’ve

given in insight


This poem is written

for Patsimpson on site

She is my mentor and

can be a delight

She has brought out

my very best poetry

I believe she’ll be

cherished with ancestry

Dear Pat,
Re: My book titled "Whispers"
Here is a compliment to you regarding my book design.  It is from a former poetry magazine editor who has authored several chapbooks as well as participated in anthologies.
"Karen, I got your book the other day and just had to tell you how adorable it is. Probably one of the very best covers and layouts I ever saw in a person's poetry book."
You have given me such a great gift Pat.  I will always be grateful....Karen O'Leary.

Patricia Farnsworth-Simpson has done a very professional job bringing my book from cover design, to finished product.  I would not have known where to start, and Pat made the process so easy for me.  She did all the formatting, cover design...organized my poetry and even included artwork that compliments each page!  After she had the book ready for printing, she also went above and beyond the call of duty and designed a webpage...set up my own bookstore and produced a YouTube video, as well as showcasing my book on her own website.  Pat stands behind her work....I do believe that she handles each book that she produces as if it were her own!   When my second book comes out, I can say without reservations, that Pat will be there with me!   Ruth Thomas Re: my book titled 'Nature's Holy Grail'

To let any and all know....Just how dedicated you are in making Dreams become Reality!!!

A Fairy Godmother...could do...no better...The speed and caring you devoted to my ever changing book

holds the truth of the hard work. I couldn’t ask....for a better person to bring my 1st book....to fruition...

You have helped me...create an ultimate goal...I can’t thank you....enough!!!

You’re a very talented and awesome Lady....Your work...has brought me much pleasure...

I look forward for you to help publish my other books!!!   I recommend you....highly!!

Re : My Book  titled “Poetry From The Earth”

Pat, I want to thank you for the wonderful job you did on my new book Mystery In The Mist.  Your artwork and creativity is extraordinary and I am so pleased. I would never choose any other publisher but you.
    Thank you so very much.Rochelle E Fischer

To Patfarnsworthsimpson-  
 I needed someone who I could trust to help me set up my web page but more importantly someone who I could entrust 20 years of my soul too. After trying to publish a book off some web page and going to the big publishers being a first time Author it was very difficult to find some one who I could completely trust that they would have my best interest at heart. From the first time I talked with you I felt a connection that was filled with interest and surrounded with respect. You gave me all your attention and within 1 week from our initial conversation I had a web page and a published book. You were very professional and very respectful of all my needs and you answered all my emails with respect and in a very timely manner. You worked diligently with me and gave me very sound advice when I asked or needed it. Because of you I have finally achieved a goal that I didn't think would ever come about. You made my web page very beautiful and it fits all my poetry well. I look forward to working with you for many more projects in the future and calling you my friend.
I know you do a lot of charity work and I know those people are blessed to have you.
Thank you again Pat for the Dreams you have helped me complete...I am going to start working on my second book right now!!!  Your Friend- Richard W. Lamp

Pat Simpson took my dream of what I wanted in my book of poetry and magically produced it even better than I imagined.  She is fantastic to work with and I Highly recommend her as publisher and hope you will check out all of her books that she has published for herself and other's.

Carolyn Sconzo

I wish to thank Pat Simpson, P.F.Publishers and Lulu books for the excellent work that was done on my book "Pieces of Existence". It is a fine quality book. There is no doubt that without their guidance and hard work I would not be a published author today. I say now to all writers who think they cannot be published that "Yes you can". They are the light that guided me through the darkness and they will do the same for you. Pat can help your dreams become reality.

Joe Hartman aka Poet Joebirdies


I just want to thank you at p.f.p.publishers for the hard work and dedication that you gave to me upon receiving my request to publish a book to benefit Alzheimer's Organization. The professionalism and dedication to my project meant as much to you as it did to me! I could not have asked for better people than you all to take on this life long project. Furthermore I would never have gotten my idea off the ground if it had not been for your personal help and speedy process in getting this charity work done. I really don't know what I would have done without you I can only hope and pray that my and all other poets work within the book "Standing Tall When Feeling Small" will in someway help to cure this awful disease. You rate 100 out of 100 in my book!!!!! I am looking forward to getting a second book off the ground in the near future and I will natrually go to you for this project as well. Many, many thanks go out to Pat Simpson for her loving devotion on this.God Bless you and all that conspired in this worthy cause.
