For Heaven’s Sake

For Heaven's Sake ~ Illustration by Patrice for Dogs In Canada Magazine

For heaven’s sake
you are blessed
driven to be your best.

For heaven’s sake
don’t listen
don’t wait to be forgiven.

For heaven’s sake
know it’s not your fault
heaven knows
has forgiven.

Total Effects

Total, total effects 
Seeing them, feeling their cause 
Certainly their effect 

Blessed they say 
Cursed say others 

There is the answer 
The total effect of what has been.

3 Rotties ~ Illustration by Patrice

Holy has it
Blessed to be
In the company of the exalted
Those that run the universe
The rain, the wind
And me.

No one says
They are lonely
Nor do they see reason
To be unhappy
Or heaven forbid

You will be one
Of these persons
You will be filled with ecstasy
For the exalted
Will make sure
It comes to be.

I Don’t Know

Sunlight on Water ~ Photo by Patrice

I don’t know what’s to be
Not my responsibility
I do know I can’t be afraid
Of the future nor remorseful
Of my past destiny.

My duty to me
Is to combine what I don’t know
With what I do know
Living in the midst of that
Which is now a blessed me.

Chandelier Light ~ Photo by Patrice

Taken from the pages
Of anarchy
Full in the hearts of subtlety
Showing no malice is

Why have you come
To be my destiny?
Nothing matters but
The throes of the heart in

Anger, passion, full
Of the vacant sound coming
From that original sin
Even then
Blessed is the heart
That changes history with

No one can know what
Could have been
My heart, my love and
All life has been and now
Come be within

The Heart

September 3, 2015

Costa Rican sunrise ~ Photo by Patrice

The heart is cold
Has done its job
Time to rest, time to be
Blessed forever in eternity.

The heart is old
And has ceased to be
In this world now
Surrounded by exquisite beauty.

The heart is pure
Has done its job
Is now with the hallowed one
The eternal God.

Yeah, Yeah

March 25, 2015

Yeah, yeah
Is what I say
To everything today.

Sordid, angry, no patience, no way
Yeah, yeah I’ll be better tomorrow
Or maybe the next day.

See no joy, no harm in any way
Just down
It’s a yeah, yeah kind of day.

Blessed I guess, cause I can have
A Yeah, yeah day and no trouble
Consequences come my way.

Must find goodness, find a way
To see happiness
In a yeah, yeah type of day.

Dear sweet friend
How blessed
I be
To know and love
A friend like thee.

Dear sweet friend
No judgement
Ever do I feel
Only love, respect
And dignity.

Dear sweet friend
I hope to be
The same for you
As you have been
To me.

Snow Soft And White

December 11, 2014

Fields of Snow ~ Photo by Patrice

Snow soft and white
Piling up
Has been all night.

Quietly falling
Blanketing all that shows.

The sun will rise
Shining bright
On snow covered fields
With a insulating layer of white.

Soft And Tender

July 9, 2014

Travellers Thru Life ~ Photo by Patrice

Soft and tender my heart waits to remember
Kisses, caresses I’ve lived in my life, seen in my life
Gentle and kind
Making my world one I don’t mind.

The heart is full with it all
Trying to make sense of it all
Because blessed we be
When in the midst of some senseless tragedy
We see a soul soft and tender
That’s when we remember
Remember our heart is full, full of it all
Soft and tender.
