I Saw You Together

I saw you together connected by an energy
A wave of endless love.

No words needed to convey, to see your love
Bonded together, radiating an energy
Produced by shared love.

Mother, daughter connected forever
By a word, a feeling, a energy
We simply name love.

You Are The One, The Special One

February 14, 2019

You are the one, the special one
That makes me catch my breath
Lost for words to express
The love I have
In my beating breast,

No words remain to take me
Any closer to a heaven on earth
As I lie side by side
With my dear sweet love
The only one I do love.

A love I adore, breathe
And live for
You are the one, the special one
My Valentine
I’ll cherish evermore.

Nothing To Say

February 13, 2019

Nothing to say, not today
No one comes, no one says
Anything relevant or astute

But then

I look outside and see
The world in all it’s beauty

Snow drifting by
Trees standing proud
Birds flying round

That’s when I realize
There’s nothing more to say
It’s already said

I just need to sit back
Enjoy this spectacular scene
This journey, this ride

I’m lost for words
My heart does sigh.

I Live In The Past

I live in the past
I see those days
I hear that heartbeat
Unable to make
Those old thoughts
Go away.

But

Not all sadness I feel
For joy and gladness
Support me today
I know I had, had it all
In the life I lived
Yesterday.

Those Who Lost The Fight

February 11, 2019

Saluki ~ Watercolour by Patrice

I hold up my hand
In gratitude to all those
Who lost the fight
The battle which had
No score.

Win or lose was the choice
Nothing else, no more
I too, will travel down that road
And at the end
To be no more.

There I may find that
Win or lose is not the choice
It’s to live
Forever more.

Let Me Settle Down

Let me settle down
My anger now is very, very profound.

You took a life, meant nothing to you
Just something in your way
With a swipe, you took a life away
Didn’t miss a stride nor did your heart skip a beat
You went on like nothing bad marked your soul
Or was there blood on your saintly hands
You smiled, laughed, no trace upon your angelic face
Of the death someone has to face
A death you caused, you alone.

It may have been just a little creature
Living life in the space you called your own
You crushed the breath from that creature’s chest
You ground your shoe in the sand
Leaving no trace of a life
That may have been so grand.

Life is precious
Intertwined with all we see
Combined to grow, prosper alongside one another
Whether we walk, run, leap or crawl
You’re not alone nor can…

Heading Down The Road

Heading down the road
Going the way
My small voice saids

She saids,

‘Come be blessed and happy
Come travel on the road
The path you’re meant to be
Enjoy every moment
Let not anything just be
Savour, inhale
All the road has to offer
On this great, lovely journey.’

Come along, join me.
~ Patrice
