Sorry I Didn’t Help

January 26, 2021

Sorry I Didn’t Help ~ Photos by Patrice

Sorry I didn’t help
Sorry I didn’t see
All the misfortune
Overwhelming you
Me.

It may be tomorrow
When I can see
The way to help you
Set you free.

Until then
Please be patient
Do all you can to understand
Not
Judging me.

World’s Face

Mulmur Hills Farmland ~ Photo by Patrice

I fell off the world’s face
Down into the depths
Of disgrace
No hope, no saving grace
Mired deep
In a unholy place.

Then out of that depth
A saviour came
Putting his arms around
Making me claim my place
In blessed, holy time.

I live
Making no mistakes
Doing no crime
I see the world’s true face
It is such a wondrous place
And is now mine.

The Worst Is Over

January 21, 2021

The Worst Is Over ~ Photo by Patrice

The worst is over
The healing begins to mend
Silently
We hold one another
We know we are together
Once again.

No one will break us apart
No, never again
Will we be so bitter, angry
With one another
For the healing, the mending
Now begins.

Hold It Still

Hold It Still ~ Art by Patrice

Hold it still
Let not the movement depict a sound
For in the quiet all will be answered
Salvation will abound.

I See Your Life

January 19, 2021

I See Your Life ~ Photo by Patrice

I see your life in front of me
I see when you fail
And
When you succeed.

Yours is not a life of in-between
You go for all
You leave nothing undone
Nothing not tried.

Yes
That’s the way
The way it all seems.

Riley Passed Away Yesterday

January 18, 2021

 Riley Passed Away Yesterday ~ Photo by Patrice

Riley passed away
yesterday
his beating heart stopped
his breath ceased to be
only memories
memories that is all we have
you see.

A gentle, kind, wondrous guy
knowing, knowledgeable
a smile on his face
devoted beyond belief
this was Riley
who now has been.

He passed away, passed away
yesterday
rest in peace sweet Riley
you were loved and loved
unconditionally.
~ Patrice  

~ My deepest condolences to his family and all that loved him ~

Experience Life

Experience life

Experience joy

Watch the tide rise

The heart breathe

A pounding employed

See the birds fly

A mockingbird cry

Feel the wind blow

Above and beneath

The evening sky

No remorse employed

Regrets not even a few

All life is abound

With joyous blessings too.

Holding On, Holding Close

January 14, 2021

 Holding On, Holding Close ~ Watercolour by Patrice

Holding on, holding close
All that I love
All that means the most
To me
Throughout.

All that is dear
No more will I let go
To lose, to discard
Oh no!

Hold on, hold close
Today, tonight
Throughout all this
My life.

Never Heard Them Say

January 13, 2021

Never Heard Them Say ~ Photo by Patrice

Never heard them say
Words seeking disaster
No, not today.

But may I testify
That words were said
In anger
Words that need not
Be said
Not one more day.

Keep them contained
In humour
Make those that need
Laugh today.

Never more
Courting disaster
Never hating ever again
If only for just today.

What Is Right

January 12, 2021

What Is Right - Photo by Patrice

Don’t know what to do
What is right
My mind is in
A quandary, a plight.

Will tomorrow
Shed some light
On this dilemma
That I’m struggling with
Tonight.

Or will I go on wondering
What’s best
What is right?
