Sorely Saddened By My Loss

Sorely saddened by my loss
So very hard to pay this cost
Of living life with those I love
Now gone, I pay the price
For loss of them in this life.

But

I’ll gladly pay that price again
For the years of love
I’ve been given
It’s priceless even though
I know
I’ll be sad down the road.

Saddened by my loss
Is a price I’ll gladly pay
To have had you in my life
Even if for just a day.

Save Myself, Help Myself

Save myself, help myself
Do not accept defeat
Power, strength moves mountains
Higher expectations cancel out retreat.

Now is the time to stand
Stand right on the line not looking back
Accepting the fact that I am
I am.

I am the one who has the will
The power to help and save
That person who I am
This I know, I know I am.

Now Will Come

Now will come and soon will past
Memories will be what will last.

Moving in transition from has been
To that that lasts.

Now can dream, dream at last.

Fall Has Come

Fall Rain ~ Photo by Patrice

Fall has come, its presence felt
The lane is crowded with leaves that fell
Geese fly through coloured hills
Their honks ringing against clear, blue skys.

While squirrels cache seeds
Nuts and whatever they can fill
Holes hidden hopefully to remember
In the cold winter still.

Sorrow, anticipation crowd my mind
At the last of summer as it falls to winter
In midst of such beauty that sends
Chills to the soul and thrills the mind.

Lighting Strikes A Hummingbird

Lighting strikes a hummingbird
As she sits, sleeping in the night.

Thunder crashes
Wind wails
Rain weeps.

No right is done
When tragedy screams thru
A dark, unforgiving night.

I Lost My Heart

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.

Did You See Me

September 7, 2018

To all those I have lost in this life

Did you see me coming down the lane?
Did you hear me crying, crying your name?
I have lost you in the mist of time
Forgotten what has been
And what was part of mine.

Then I hear you softly call my name
Feel your arms around me once again
Trust the world will still be pleased
Even thou you no longer step
Along this path with me.
