Wondering What I’m Going To Do

March 28, 2019

Wondering what I’m going to do
Travel back in time
Or make memories all anew
Finding it hard to let go
Of thoughts and judgements
I’ve had, they just stay
They won’t go.

Heart is full, heart is fine
But it must be considerate
Of those along the way I find
Never to berate
Nor say stinging things
Be good, gentle
Moderate everything.

As You Move Forward Into Eternity

As you move forward into eternity
Stop and look around
See majesty.

See forests, lawns, parks and lakes
See people, fawns and a most interesting place
Nothings ever dull if you but care to trace
The movement of the world
For it’s such a wondrous place.

Please move thru this time in space
With a light and tender thread
So they’ll only know you’ve been here
By all the good they felt
From your kind and gentle tread.

An Old Soul Once Told Me

June 1, 2018

An old soul once told me
‘Be kind, gentle and above all full of courtesy’.

Makes no difference that old soul you see
Was a dog I knew
Oh, just so briefly.

Sometimes I Let It Go

Sometimes I let it go
Sometimes I don’t give it a second thought.

Sometimes I wonder what happened?
What changed your mind and erased your loving heart?

Once I was all you knew
No one else you gave a second thought.

Now indifference clouds the view
Sarcasm is the voice heard a lot
No more gentle caress, no more loving thoughts.

Didn’t happen over night
It seeped in thru empty, shallow thoughts
Taking a awful tole on our gentle, loving hearts.

Sometime turn around look back down your path
See me standing all alone, looking back.

Loving as much as I did then
In the gentle, loving days
Before the empty, shallow thoughts.

Gentle Kindness Needed Everywhere

3 Rotties ~ Illustration by Patrice

Gentle kindness needed everywhere
Fill the gap with hardy laughs
Store any gain in a open sack.

That way, you’ll be above
All that holds you back.

Laugh, laugh
Embracing and sharing gentle kindness
Feel it here at last.

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.
