The World

September 18, 2018

Watching the Sunset ~ Photo by Patrice

The world doesn’t wait
For what I have to say
It moves forward, spinning
Light, dark everyday.

The world doesn’t turn back
Nor stop in it’s tracks
Because I’ve fallen, fell
While traversing my path.

The world doesn’t care
If I start to cry
There are others burdened heavy
Some have died.

The world doesn’t leave me
Far behind
It holds me, helps me
Giving me all I need
To survive.

Not Alone

September 17, 2018

Wood Smiles and Sad ~ Photo by Patrice

Can’t believe I’m not alone
For there at my side
A presence stays
While I live, work, love, play
And some day, die.

Not alone, never to be
My journey directed
Choreographer, just for me.

I am loved no matter what
I have a place to stand
My back protected
My heart in loving hands.

My protector, confidant, spirit guide
May be those
Who have already lived
And now, have died.

Not that I care from where
They come
Just to feel that presence
At my side.

Will make my road
Smoother, a joy to live
Oh, such a ride!

I Lost My Heart

Black Swan ~ Photo by Patrice

I Lost My Heart
Somewhere last night
Can’t find it
I’ve looked all night.

It wasn’t in the bed
We slept in last night
Nor on the table where we sat
Holding hands last night.

Maybe on the pathway
We walked just before midnight
No, couldn’t find it
Even thu I looked
All thorough the night.

Then in the morning
In the morning light
I found my heart
Found my heart unbroken
You’d held it in your arms
All through the loving night.

The Wind Comes

September 13, 2018

Blooms in a Storm ~ Photo by Patrice

The wind comes and she blows
Blows winds of disaster
Chaos
A multitude of things untold.

Her mighty strength will subside
Only when her fevered anger
Has run its course
And then she’ll be quiet air.

No evidence detected
Just anguish, heartache
Sadness left
That surely did unfold.

The Sun Shines Bright

September 12, 2018

Sun Flower ~ Photo by Patrice

The sun shines bright
Morning, noon and into night
Radiating heat
Blending, making rivers flow
Plants grow, the earth breathe.

Life lives because of the sun
Its rays beaming from very far
Bringing life, birthing life
Here and on distant planets
Like so many stars.

Feel the heat, feel the glow
Feel it and know
The sun gives all she’s got
And thou she doesn’t ask
We should find a way
A way to give back.

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.

Feeling

Grasses - Photo by Patrice

Feeling
The grass grow
Seeing
Leaves wave in the breeze
I know
Know there is a God
And
He’s taking care of me.
