Holding Up The Light

Holding Up The Light ~ Photo by Patrice

Holding up the light
searching all thru the night
seeking happiness
in the darkest places
trying desperately to turn on
even a glimmer of light.

Maybe tomorrow
when the sun shines it’s light
I’ll fine the joy and happiness
I’ve been searching
all thru this dark, dark night.

No One Else Can Say

No one else can say those words
Nor make it right
That all will come when you see
The shinning light
You’ll watch it disappear
The dark, dark night.

Sleepy Tired

Sleepy tired
Worry wakes me in the night
Toss turn
Feeling no sleep
As anguish plays on my sleepless stage
In a darkness with no saving light.

Maybe in the morning
All will be clear
A path opening up, a way from here to there
But tonight greeted with only so many questions
Keeping me sleepy tired
In a dim, dark hopeless night.

Let Me Know

Let me know what is right
What I need
To make it thru this dark night.

Hallowed honour makes the mistake
Thinking its important
What’s at stake.

Nothing matters most of all
Just let me know the name, the voice
I need to call.

Hearts Aflame

Thunder crashes hearts aflame in anger
All things no one can blame
No answers right
Nor all wrong found tonight
Only thoughts a hunger for those
Roaming a tortured mind
Late in this cold, dark night.

The End Of Day

See The Way ~ photo by Patrice







The end of day
Must make way
For the darkness
Of night.

Must believe
We will be alright
Chartering a course
Thru the blackness
Into board daylight.

We will be alright.

Travel light, focus
And you’ll be arriving
To the morning
Blessed for having
The quiet restfulness
Of a good dark night.
~ Patrice
