Make a decision to turn your life around to be the person you want to be. Not wish you were but be.

Carefully Watch, Carefully See

July 2, 2015

Carefully watch, carefully see

The world evolve majestically

Don’t stop the trend

Don’t be part of those who halt the flow

Carefully watch, carefully go

See dignity, see might

See love and everything you need

As you go towards the light

Carefully watch, carefully be

The secret to a life you need

Carefully watch, carefully see.

My Face

June 29, 2015

Each morning now I greet a face
A stranger, I don’t remember
Back in time or space
An older woman surprises me in the mirror
Each morning, when
I wash her face.

When did she get here?
When did she arrive?
When did she replace that young girl?
Who greeted me in the mirror
As I
Washed her face.

Glad she’s here
Glad she survived and got thru
All the world put on her plate
When I think about it
I’m glad she took that young girl’s place
The one who used to
Wash my face.

Strive For Happiness

June 24, 2015

Strive for happiness
Creating love
Narrow the corridor
That harbours anger
Let it sink deep into murky mud.

Never saw it coming
Never heard the cry
Maybe in the beginning
I didn’t understand
The reason why.

Now that is over and it seems
The clouds have begun to dry
I’ll take my happiness
And make love
The reason why.

Deep In The Rest

Deep in the rest of sleep tonight
My soul does dream so vividly
Life is full, time is dear
Honoured by those held so near.

I awaken rested, never knowing
Time has passed
Troubles solved and circumstance
Seems not to be the threat I feared
So horribly.

No one drew or threw a veil
Upon my sight
Just goodness does
And will prevail.

I slumber now in perfect rest
No concern, no distress
Awakening to light cascading down
Upon my life where goodness
Does and will abound.

Fireflys Dance In The Dark

Fireflys dance in the dark
Coyotes cry of times long gone
The joy that darkness hides
Envelopes and keeps me warm.

In a state of wonder
Of  night’s magic
While bats circle and dive
And deer silently pass
Through willows
Into the eery moonlight.

Where the night holds
All that dance far into the night
In the dark
The dark wondrous night.

~ Patrice
