I Let Them Go

I Let Them Go ~ Photo by Patrice

I let them go 
He held me close 
No words were said 
It was as if 
He was a ghost. 

Tomorrow may be 
A different day 
I hope 
He’s with me 
Keeping all
That’s bad at bay.

Sleepy, Tired

April 12, 2021

Sleepy, tired
wake up from tired sleep 
open eyes, rub the sleep right out 
yawn quite a bit 
move about
breath in, breath out. 

Wake for the day starting, begin 
sleep tonight after dark steps in 
where once again 
sleepy, tired is what is felt

Old Lady

Me ~ Photo by Patrice

When I look in the mirror
I see an old lady
Starring at me.

I agonize over
Whether she
Really likes me.

Does she think
Me silly
I can’t see.

But so want to tell her
I’m happy
She got to be an old lady
Just like me!

Why Haven’t You

April 8, 2021

Why haven’t you held me close 
Protected me from the worst, the gross 
Why haven’t you? 

Why haven’t you heard my pleas 
My calls for help 
Why haven’t you? 

Why haven’t you seen the worst 
And fell upon the evil that has me cursed 
Why haven’t you? 

Why haven’t you seen, heard, felt or been
The one I need 
Why haven’t you? 

Why haven’t you?

I’m Not The One

I'm Not The One ~ Photo by Patrice

I’m not the one 
to cry, weep or wail 
for the sky opens 
and all possibilities
will be at my disposal. 

Nothing to hinder me 
not one soul that fights 
is against the role 
that I see coming
for me. 

Laugh, cry
a song of happy 
for it is truly
the road to eternity.

The Heart Is Cold

The Heart Is Cold ~ Photo by Patrice

The heart is cold 
the lie not true 
changes made fall back 
upon you. 

Make your way 
bridge the gap 
be true to heart 
foresake not.

The ones who bled 
when you 
were far apart.

Ideas Come

Ideas Come ~ Photo by Patrice

Ideas come 
sometimes they flow 
then sometimes
they stop. 

The page is blank 
not a thought, not anything
just a slate, a page
that’s clear. 

then all of a sudden 
they flow 
in a rushing, gushing river 
that overflows. 

What a time, a place to be 
for it’s then I know 
I have ideas that will grow
and grow and grow.

The Sun Shines Bright

The Sun Shines Bright ~ Photo by Patrice

The sun shines bright 
bringing morning
into daylight 
birds sing, squirrels fly 
looking for feasts 
in the clear morning

Nothing could go wrong 
nothing could be bad 
hoping for the best 
in the bright morning

What I’ve Seen

What I've Seen ~ Photo by Patrice

What I’ve seen
the best of you 
the world
in all
it’s splendour 
what I’ve seen

No anger nor hate 
of that
what I’ve seen 

What I’ve seen 
is it true
would you remind me 
what I’ve seen 
just, only 
a lovely, recurring dream.

Fill The Store

Fill The Store ~ Photo by Patrice

Fill the store
Empty the heart of things vicious
Tearing you apart 

Please go 
Please depart 

Let the sun shine in 
The love to flow 
The world know you are gentle  
All good things fill 
Your store and loving heart.
