In The Heart

In the heart of my distress
I find an ark of happiness
Ferrys me to a life
In heaven’s image
No heartache, nor strife
In my dreams I seek, I see
This hallowed place I saw
I seek.

My Fortune Is In My Hands

October 15, 2019

My Dedicated Running Partner - Photo by Patrice

My Fortune I suppose
Is in my hands
The coming and going
Of goodness, happiness
Is in my command.

No soaked coat
Laden with anger
Can cover me
Or make my way
A forsaken land.

I will, I can
See my fortune ahead
Waiting
Waiting to take my hand.

Strive For Happiness

Strive for happiness
Creating love
Narrow the corridor
That harbours anger
Let it sink deep into murky mud.

Never saw it coming
Never heard the cry
Maybe in the beginning
I didn’t understand
The reason why.

Now that is over and it seems
The clouds have begun to dry
I’ll take my happiness
And make love
The reason why.

Having A Hard Day

April 16, 2019

No Trespassing ~ Photo by Patrice

Having a hard day
Sleepless last night
Thinking all that angers me
Keeps me up at night.

Not mine to control
Not mine
Yet I struggle
Struggle to let go.

Happiness evades me
Anger, frustration
He said
She did.

Why can’t they see
They’re not right
And I’m in the wrong place
Not where I want to be.

The Morning Doesn’t Run Away

October 9, 2018

Willow ~ Watercolour Painting by Patrice

The morning doesn’t run away
It stands and looks ahead
To what will come to be
On this now, breaking day.

No regrets should start the way
no ‘what if’ nor nothing negative
Be brought to this new day.

Only anticipation, happiness
With excitement on the face
That stands, looks forward
To this one bright, perfect day.

Everything Is Orchestrated

June 18, 2018

Everything is orchestrated
Nothing left to chance
No sadness, happiness comes
Just by circumstance.

Delve deep within it
Try to see the why
Know nothing will come of it
Cause just a mortal
Are you and I.

Heartache Does Not Survive

May 17, 2017

Heartache
Does not survive
In a world that is alive
No remorse
Can run its course
If we not let it be.

Sadness
Has no class
Thus
We shouldn’t strive
To have it in our lives.

Happiness
Now that’s something to keep
And dwell within
Then we’ll be in heaven’s presence
Eternally.
