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.

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…

When Your Heart Is Sore

When your heart is sore
Your tears won’t dry
Remember
You’re not alone
We hear your cries.

Remember too
All who we’ve said goodbye
Are with us still
Only running now
Where angels fly.

What Has Happened?

Filtered Sunlight ~ Photo by PatriceWhat has happened?
What will be today?
No one telling’
Just moving, moving on their way.

Couldn’t hear directions
Couldn’t see the way
Couldn’t, couldn’t remember my journey
From that other day.

Must trust the Master
Must believe, believe he’ll guide me
On this that is
My journey’s way.

Where Are We Going?

Where are we going?
How long will we stay?
Are our friends coming with us?
Is our life in disarray?

No answer to these questions
No words will make the wrong okay
All I can do is wonder
Cause tomorrow will bring answers
I’m asking for today.

Never Known Where I Belong

January 11, 2019

Rottie Pups ~ Painting by Patrice

Never known where I belong
Seems to me my whole family
Is just wrong.

Why? Why?

Neither does my love’s
Seem willing to embrace
Me strong.

Why? Why?

I don’t know where I belong
Wherever I go
The same seems to apply.

Why? Why?

Am I from another earth?
Do I belong in a time
Gone by?

Can’t say
Don’t know what’s wrong.

Or should I just understand
The world belongs to those
That accept different as they are
Part of the woven web
Is what we are.

We belong, we belong
I now know where it is I belong.

Good Beginnings

Good beginnings
Caress the past
Moving forward
Beyond the last
Making new ones
As they come to be.

No one knows
Just what’s in store
Only that the way
Is open and
Pulls us through
Here to this day.

Showing
Another time
Beginning now today
But always, always
Starting yesterday.
~ Patrice
