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.

I’m Alive

April 21, 2021
I'm Alive ~ Photo by Patrice

My heart is empty 
A soul full of
nothing 
I walk thru the world 
a zombie 
feeling, hearing, seeing 
nothing. 

Will I wake 
I will arrive at a place
full of love 
joy and happiness 
a place where 
I can cry
I’m alive, I alive!

Feeling, Reaching Out, Holding Close

October 20, 2020

Feeling, Reaching Out, Holding Close ~ Photo by Patrice

Feeling, reaching out, holding close
Not sure what this is all about.

Taste the anger, spit it out
Drink deep love, give it to all
All about.

See the sun rise, breathing life
Into a blue, sweet sky.

Experience the night
Enveloping all in a blanket warm and pure
Kept safe til darkness disappears.

I feel this, I reach out, hold close
For I now know what it’s all about.

It

Not having
It
Not seeing
It
Not feeling
It
Not sure what
It is.

But I’m hoping for
Pleading for
Trying to accomplish
It.

Keeping, Feeling

Keeping everything in store
Keeping all things close to me
Feeling insecure
Feeling
Feeling a little needy.

I Saw You Together

Yehudi Menuhin ~ Illustration by Patrice

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

January 22, 2019

My Mom ~ Photo by Patrice

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

December 5, 2018

Old House Window ~ photo by Patrice

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.

Feeling

Grasses - Photo by Patrice

Feeling
The grass grow
Seeing
Leaves wave in the breeze
I know
Know there is a God
And
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
Feeling
It’s cold, cold heart.

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

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