I Saw You Together

I saw you together connected by an energy
A wave of endless love.

No words needed to convey, to see your love
Bonded together, radiating an energy
Produced by shared love.

Mother, daughter connected forever
By a word, a feeling, a energy
We simply name love.

I Do Remember

I do remember
Your loving grace
The innocent smile upon your face
Your strong embrace.

I do remember
Shelter in a troubled world
Your ability of slowing down
A hectic pace.

I do remember
A simple kind gesture
Sweetness on your face
A peaceful existence.

All this I do
I do remember.

The Hall Is Narrow

The hall is narrow
The ceiling falling down
My way to the living room
Can’t be found.

A method of cooking fills
Mouldy kitchen air
Where cabinets hang
Feeling no loving care.

Nothing to clean away
Night terrors experienced
In a cluttered bedroom
Where sleep is not
Usually assumed.

Another way, another day
Maybe tomorrow will be perfect
Making this just a dream
I dreamed yesterday.

The grass grow
Leaves wave in the breeze
I know
Know there is a God
He’s taking care of me.

Melancholy Feelings, Sorry Heart

December 12, 2017

Horse and Cattle ~ Painting by Patrice

Melancholy feelings
Sorry heart
Trudging through the snow
It’s cold, cold heart.

Icicles dangling, dripping
To sadden, frozen ground
No where to go
Sadness all around.

Then the sun shines
Spreading, singing like a lark
Warming all the world
That frigid, frozen heart.

Seeing The Scars

Old House ~ Photo by Patrice

Seeing the scars
Coated over
Feeling, festering
Oozing beneath
The anger welling up
To soldier on
Inspire of what
Lies under underneath.

Sleepy Tired

June 29, 2017

Old House ~ Photo by Patrice

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.
