Deep In The Rest

June 22, 2015

Deep in the rest of sleep tonight
My soul does dream so vividly
Life is full, time is dear
Honoured by those held so near.

I awaken rested, never knowing
Time has passed
Troubles solved and circumstance
Seems not to be the threat I feared
So horribly.

No one drew or threw a veil
Upon my sight
Just goodness does
And will prevail.

I slumber now in perfect rest
No concern, no distress
Awakening to light cascading down
Upon my life where goodness
Does and will abound.

Turquoise Blue

Turquoise blue
Saintly, much like you
Deep, mysterious
Basking in sunshine
Mists of blue.

No heartache, only passion
Focused on dreams
Stories, mostly about you
Turquoise in colour
Shades of blue.

Nothing I see
Nothing I do
Will make the colour
Like your colour
Turquoise blue.

Deep In A Wretched Chasm Of Despair

Deep in a wretched chasm of despair
Struggling, struggling to get out
Out of there
Fallen down a well of no repair
Intimidating, dark down there.

Feel the walls
Feel their strength
They’ll help you climb back up
Into a life of freedom
Happiness, no despair.

Don’t dwell way down
Way down there
In that chasm, that well
Filled with hell
Way down there.

Bring yourself up, out
Feel the rays spreading out
Warming, bringing joy
Happiness all about
No pain.

No heartache there about
As we bask in the warmth
Of the sun, knowing
We’ll never fall back down
into that dark chasm
We’ll never, ever fall
ever at all.

Sometimes Sadness Falls

September 4, 2013

Sometimes sadness falls
So far
Desperately need not
Feel that scar
Melancholy breeding
Gaining ground.

Spreading out
Seeping deep
Within the psychic far
Oh so far around.

Trembling lips reach out
Grabbing, holding on
No hollow
Shallow victory
But a life
Maybe gone.

Tears stream down
Wanting, wailing cheeks
Splattering near
And on hardened ground
No soft tender place Golden in Trouble ~ illustration by Patrice for Dogs in Canada Magazine
To be found.

Hold yourself together
Hold yourself
Up to the light
For even if sadness falls
Make it you who decides
On which kind
A loving
Or hardened ground.

My Heart Sends The Word

My heart sends the word
To those that want to be
Free and deep dark
In the sea of cordial ecstasy.

See The Depth There Inside

May 22, 2013


Golden Eagle ~ illustration by PatriceSee the depth there inside
Where no one can or could ever hide.

There inside let me be the one who stands
And sees what can be not that what shouldn’t be.

See the depths close you eyes
Be at peace because here inside you can reside
Safe secure til all is right outside.

Dwell inside but first look deep inside
See the depth where it does reside.

Not Sure Where I Stand

March 4, 2013

Grass in Winter ~ photo by Patrice

Not sure where I stand
Not sure where I’ll be
Deep, sad remorse
And engulfs me.

Sadness reeks of sickness
Monsters creep
And crawl around
Head full of anguish
I must hold my ground.

Back laden
With burdens pulling
Pulling good hearts

Grip the soft shoulder
Of kindness
Let her lift me up
Munster courage
That surrounds us
It will back me up.
