What Is Right

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

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

I Saw You

I saw you
You filled my heart
My life did soar
This is all I need
I need no more.

All I Can Know

All I can know
You have given me.

Nothing is left
Out of my destiny.

No heart pumps
Without a soul,

No mind smiles
Unless they know.

Breach of the Capital Building ~ Photo by Jason Andrew

When it happened
What did you say
How did you rationalize
All the people breaching
The Capital building

Nothing, no one
Can make it seem right

Sing The Song You Hear

Sing The Song You Hear ~ Photo by Patrice

Sing the song you hear in your head
play the tune rhyming there instead
for if you follow all those sweet words
joy will be your reward
love will accompany you wherever you may tread.

Fully In Love

Fully In Love  ~ Photo by Patrice

I know you haven’t been
Fully in love
No matter what is said
What is seen.

You smile and laugh
You offer your hand to help
But still, still part of you
Doesn’t love, doesn’t feel

Let The World Turn

 Let The World Turn ~ Photo by Patrice

Let the world turn
resolve the problems
that really are not our concern.

Let the sky be blue not with sadness
but remembering memories not gone
not lost from me, from you.

See the earth tremble
cry in anticipation of wondrous joy to come
never seeing anything but a good outcome.

That’s what we should see when looking out
looking at the world and all the things
that will become.

Beginning A New Year

Beginning a new year
A new day
Leaving all that’s bad
In yesterday.

Bringing with me
Only love and joy
Created there
In my yesterday.

Have I Been Helpful

December 31, 2020

 Have I Been Helpful ~ Photo by Patrice

Have I been helpful, have I’ve been the best?

Looking back upon the year
What would I change, what would I let rest?

No time to dwell, no time for remorse

For I must move forward, look ahead
To the year yet to unfold
Anticipate it to be full of wonders
Yet to be told.

Holding On, Holding Tight

December 30, 2020

Holding On, Holding Tight ~ Photo by Patrice

Holding on, holding tight
Trying desperately to make it
Thru the day into night.

No one to help, no one to say
Words of wisdom
Nothing on this day.

Where will I be, what will I say
In a world where I’m on my own
For today.
~ Patrice
