I See The Beauty

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.

I See You In The Morning Light

July 21, 2022
I See You In The Morning Light ~ Photo by Patrice

I see you in the morning light 
in the depth of deep darkness 
somewhere
in the middle of a quiet night. 

You give me pleasure 
you give me strength 
something to hold on to 
when I feel lonely 
weak 
and out of strength. 

No one else
could I conceive will keep me
safe 
and be the one
who carries me far from here
far into eternity.

Working Hard

Working Hard ~ Photo by Patrice

Working hard 
But seem stuck in debris 
Struggling, attempting
Fighting
To get free. 

Is help on the way 
Or
Am I by myself 
Can I pull it off 
Sit back, relax 
Harbouring no doubt? 

This I hope, I do pray 
But as of now 
I’m stuck
In
Disaster’s stinking muck.

The Feelings

The Feelings ~ Photo by Brent

Felt the feelings  
Acknowledged the goal 
Can I move forward 
Saving
Saving my soul? 

No answers
Needed 
No thoughts of obtaining 
That
Elusive goal. 

Just in the feeling 
Moving forward 
Feeling 
Feeling all that I see 
I touch 
And
Now hold.

They Thought I Was Crazy

They Thought I Was Crazy - Photo by Patrice

They thought
I was crazy 
they thought I was nuts 
I heard laughter, jeering
silence, smirks
that did suck. 

From there I went forward 
farther than most 
believing in my worth 
holding tight to that dream
I brought to fruition 
this life
I hold close.

Trust Me For I Know

July 15, 2022

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.

You Haven’t Been

July 14, 2022
You Haven't Been ~ Photo by Patrice

No, you haven’t been 
there for me or any of your next of kin 
No, you haven’t been. 

All about yourself 
all about the great big me 
thoughts of any other are non existent 
never, haven’t been. 

It could be tomorrow or the day after that 
you’ll see the folly of your ways 
step up, be all that 
you haven’t
just haven’t been.

Happy

Happy ~ Illustration by Patrice

Make it happy 
make it be something
you take home 
giving joy and pleasantries. 

No strife or anger 
nor what ever could be 
just happy, happy as can be.

Need To Find

July 12, 2022
Need To Find ~ Watercolour Painting by Patrice

Need to find 
So desperately
The source of happiness 
All things that give life 
Making a life 
So divine 

May I forget 
Miserable 
May I need not
Remorse 
For I’ve found the beauty and joy
In this life 
This
That’s my life 
Of course.

I Have Felt

I Have Felt ~ Photo by Patrice

I have felt
and
still feel you here 

I know
know you are forever 
with me there 

I’ll try my best 
to let you lead me 
where I need to go 

Guiding me 
thru
that treacherous path 

Coming out to a world
full of love and beauty
unsurpassed.
