We Are Here

We are here
There is a reason
Your life has purpose
Each phase is like
A season.

Cherish it
Live it to the full
And that just may be
The reason.

Understand Your Dreams

September 17, 2014

Understand your dreams
Listen to what they say
Hear what you must do
See what has been, what may come
Know every thought evolves from
Somewhere, something.

You dream
You dream and understand.

Rain, Pouring Rain

Rain, pouring rain, cold, colder still
Chills falling, falling down again
Winter’s come, pass the fall
Summer’s gone, we’ve missed it all.

One thing we can do
Is pray for spring, feel the dew
Then summer’s warmth will arrive
Holding us, in her arms once again.

See And Forgive

See and forgive
Without that we cannot live
Heart full of love, not hate
Make your world a better
Happy place.

Don’t Know The Reason

Don’t know the reason
Don’t know the why
Still saddened by the outcome
Even if time has so long gone by.

Prayers for those lost
Prayers for those taken
All have paid
Such a unbelievable cost.

Don’t know the reason
Don’t know the why
Saddened by the outcome
All I do is cry, cry.
~ Patrice  

My thoughts and prayers are with all victims of 9/11.

Hold Back The Anger

September 10, 2014

Hold back the anger
Remembering where hurts were done
By people who just didn’t care.

Not the one they tried to make me
Not the one who really cares
Whether their world is perfect
Cause in my heart, mine is
And nothing, no part of theirs.

Lighting Strikes A Hummingbird

Lighting strikes a hummingbird
As she sits, sleeping in the night.

Thunder crashes
Wind wails
Rain weeps.

No right is done
When tragedy screams thru
A dark, unforgiving night.
