Sun goes down
Into the evening sky
Leaving the moon to reflect it’s light
Into the water deep and blue
Turning it golden
Blood red too.

All is quiet in the evening sky
Birds ponder the reason why
As the sun now sinks
Beneath the ocean blue
Refreshing itself in waters deep, dark
Purely quiet too

Heavenly Father Hear My Call

Heavenly Father
Hear my call
No weeping
Wailing not at all
Sinner I am
Of course you know
I’ll bow down
Ease the flow.

Heavenly Father
Hear my call
I love, I love you
I love you all.

Monty's Last Day ~ Photo by Patrice





He died today
But really

We said goodbye
With such
Great sorrow.

No heart could
As much as ours.

We sobbed and sobbed
We knew there would be
No tomorrow.

I Cry, So I Cry

I feel the heaven and the lie
I know the answer I sigh
Nothing is respectful
Nor is it what I need to know
I cry
So I cry.

I see the heaven
I see the ocean’s die
I am part of the earth
Scotched, bleeding dry
That’s why, that’s when
I cry
So I cry

Hear The Heartache Cry

The heartache cry
It’s voice so sad and low
No one else
Can feel it’s loss
Only us
We do know.

Will I Show You Who I Am

Farmhouse Face and Lilacs ~ Photo by Patrice

Will I show you who I am
Will I reveal the face
I know I’ve been?

Will the lines of tomorrow
Be etched
Across my taunt skin?

Will the ones
That happened yesterday
Be still there
In a full or forced grin?

I don’t know the answer
Cause you see
I don’t know who I’ve been.

It’s Time The Master Said

February 11, 2017

It’s time the master said

To live without fear

Without dread

Back to the heart

That rises fine and true

Keeps the soul warm

Surrounding you.

It’s time the master said

Hold your head high

Reach to the sky

Make no one sad

Nor deny

The feelings you feel.

It’s time

It’s time the master said.
