In The Distant Past

May 26, 2020

I have lived before
I have lived a life

In the distant past

Good or bad I had
A life before memories
Faded

In the distant past

They didn’t last
As new ones evolved
Different but built on
That life lived

In the distant past.

I Need To Know

May 25, 2020
Wicka ~ Watercolour by Patrice

I can’t keep you happy
I can’t let you go
No one can say the things
I need to know.

Bow my head in anguish
Raise it in joy
Move forward, telling
No one where or what
I need to know.

Somewhere Along The Way

Somewhere along the way
My heart bled and sadness, sorrow
Washed away.

Somewhere along the way
I don’t know where or will I stay
Near or far, far away.

Somewhere along the way
My heart bled and washed
All thoughts of you away.

Somewhere
Somewhere along the way.

I Know You Couldn’t Possibly Hear Me

May 21, 2020

I know you couldn’t possibly
Hear me
I know I’m in this alone
But still I feel the road
Isn’t travelled by me
All alone.

Presence, shadows hover
Near and above
Whispers in silence
Make my heart beat
As I pray for help
From those I have loved.

Now is not the time to cry
For I’ve been given
A chance
To move forward
move ahead.

Trusting in
What I know is there
Not seen
Just
Only in my head.

A Million Miles Away

May 20, 2020

Sun Flower ~ Photo by Patrice

A million miles away
The sun shines
No matter
The time of day.

My heart must bring
That sun from far
To my day, my walk
My way.

Holding close all
That’s good
All I need to make
It thru today.

From a million miles away
The sun shines
Shines on me
As I’m on my way.

I Have Been There

May 19, 2020

Sad Golden ~ Illustration by Patrice

I have been there
Seen everything
Held my breath
And
Tried not to scream.

Sadness mounts
Envelops me
Reason why
Evades
Not only me.

Maybe tomorrow
All will be ok
Til then
I’ll live thru
This troubling day.

May 24th Celebration Has Gone

May 24th Celebration in Jarvis ~ Photo by Patrice

May 24th celebration has gone
used to be festivities
All day long.

Nothing, no more celebrating
Can’t understand
How could all this pass?

Used to be dancing, parties, sing-along
Fireworks and baseball
May 24th celebration, all day long.
