My Heart Aches

My heart aches for the life
That could have been
The life cut short for no reason
Other than seemed a good thing
To do in the universal scheme.

My heart aches, my eyes bleed
Nothing is fair that I perceive
Maybe tomorrow sense will breathe
Understanding into all of this
Catastrophe.

My Heart

Diva and Lise Painting ~ Watercolour by Patrice

My heart rules, my heart says
Be the best and then leave the rest
Don’t look for bad nor tolerate those
That bring it.

My heart hears all kinds of things
Water crashing on distant shores
A baby bird looking for some more
The calling of a lonesome wolf.

My heart feels the touch of necessity
A coffee warm, so tasty
The gentle caress from one
So loved.

My heart does all these things
While beating life and breathe
Into everything.

Don’t Fear

Don’t fear the light
Nor the darkness in the dead of night
They will all embrace you
Lead you
With a guiding light.

The Sun Shines Bright

River Beauty ~ Photo by Patrice

The sun shines bright
Mists have blended
Into the water beyond
No one sees bees
No bats fly
In the expanse that surrounds

Nor does anyone hear
The cry
They’re gone, they’re gone

I rest, I sleep
Maybe there I’ll see
And
Seek a world that once here
Belonged.

Looking Out

Looking out upon the vast history
Of life lived
And made better with dignity.

All is well
And will be the best there is
He saids.

As he reaches down
And kisses me
Upon my undeserving head.

In a time gone by
We laughed, we cried
We joined hands to understand
The way life goes
No tears were lost
No embrace ignored
We lived it all
Life itself was our reward,

I See The Beauty

Looking Down ~ Photo by Patrice

I see the beauty
The magnificence
In all the land.

As I stand in awe of all
She reaches down
She touches me
She touches all.

She understands.

Trust Me For I Know

Trust Me ~ Photo by Patrice

Trust me for I know a lot
Not that you don’t
I’m sure you know, know a lot.

It’s just that in this time of strife
I’ve been here, I know how anger
Can eat away all happiness
Leaving nothing in your heart.

Please put away your revenge
Your ‘Get Even Tools’
Please see the magnitude
Of what lies before you
And forgiveness be your attitude.

I Have Been Feeling

I have been feeling
Not so great
Everything matters
But not at stake.

The life I live
Must be honoured
No too hard
Nor can’t be done.

Understand I can
And
Will overcome.

Before The Light Begins To Fade

Blue Violets ~ Photo by Patrice

Before the light begins to fade
See the beauty in all you survey
Let no small thing be overlooked
As you feel your heart pounding
In a life lived with gratitude
Giving all
No matter what comes to be
This, I think
We need to see.
~ Patrice
