Sadness

April 17, 2017

Sadness comes and overwhelms me
It sinks into my heart
Envelopes me
No escape can I find.

Sadness reigns, is defined
By coursing thru my veins
To my head, to my heart
Sadness indeed does reign.

Sadness is in control
Is a thought
I can’t help but feel
It steals all love
All sacred thoughts.

This sadness
Great sadness is in my heart.

Rest in peace dear friend Clive.

My Dream

Will my dream
My dream come true
Will it spread wealth, happiness
Throughout for me, for you
Will it stay
Keep me from being blue
Feeling blessed
Near the God
Who makes it all come true.

Your Heart

April 12, 2017

Willow ~ Watercolour Painting by Patrice

Celebrate your life
Celebrate yourself
See the world in your heart.

Tread upon the lifeline
Follow it to happiness
Let it reside in your heart.

Take nothing for granted
All of it has helped you
Find what lives in your heart.

Start celebrating your life
Celebrating
All that’s in your heart.

Wondering, Wondering

April 11, 2017

Wondering, wondering
What has happened
What lies ahead
Wondering.

Know nothing
Can be changed
Nor improved upon
Still, still wondering.

Will it happen once again
Or be so different
From the past
I’m wondering, wondering.

No one knows for sure
Yet hopes
Assumes the best
While wondering, wondering.

I Think

April 10, 2017

Misty ~ Watercolour Painting by Patrice

I think
Think of things
Will they come true
Or will they fall into
An abyss so blue?

When I think like this
I may sometimes cringe
Or sometimes laugh
Cause sometimes
I think
Think of you at last.

It’s Cold, It Blows

April 7, 2017

Spring-Winter Snowfall ~ Photo by Patrice

It’s cold, it blows
It doesn’t seem to want
To go away.

It strikes my heart
Piercing all that’s warm
Freezing it today.

No pleading, crying
Can make it melt
Becoming rain on a sunny day.

No, it’s cold
It blows all thoughts
Of lovely spring away.

Cold, Dark With Swampy Damp

April 6, 2017

Lilacs in a Storm ~ Photo by Patrice

Cold, dark with swampy damp
Crusty mould moves over sodden land
No one speaks nor do they roar
Injustice reigns
Gentle loving is no more.
