The Light

October 3, 2022
The Light ~ Photo by Brent

There before me stands 
the light 

The one that’ll be
my guiding light 
to a world
I know exists

Where I’ll be
oblivious to heartache
melancholy thoughts
and pain. 

Plus, other things
I can’t explain. 

See me drench
myself in this light
Feel its warmth, beauty
unsurpassed delight.

No More I Say

No More I Say ~ Photo by Patrice

No more I say 
No more will I be angry
I’ll stay in the blessed day
away from dark clouds
ones that carry sadness, sorrow
making heartache
fill the days of tomorrow.

I’ll live the blessed, the right way
holding all that’s loved 
in gentle tenderness
no need for revenge or anger
not today nor tomorrow.

My Heart Seems Broken

My Heart Seems Broken ~ Photo by Patrice

My heart seems broken
the world appears unfair
direction is lost
my world, my heart
are in
such deep despair.

It may be
the sun will shine
bringing healing, loving light

But for now
this moment
all I feel is sadness, heartache
~ Patrice

My heart, my thoughts go out to those in Texas who have suffered such tragedy.

Terrible Times Do Occur

Terrible times do occur
Marching lines, men’s faces obscure
No more joy, lightly skipping breeze
Heartache, morse pretty bleak.

Then the sun shines oh so bright
Lighting the way both day and night
No more tears, sadness blame
All is well once again.

You Don’t Know

You Don't Know ~ Photo by Patrice


Of course you don’t know 
The sadness, the heartache 
I shouldn’t know. 

You see the life 
That seems to glow. 

Sometimes it’s a lie 
Sometimes you see I cry 
Then if course 

You don’t know.

When The Rains Fell Down

When the rains fell down
The sky was blue
Feeling all the misery
That’s come to you.

Tears of sadness
Heartache blue
Rains fell, not only crying
But to comfort you.

Looking Forward, Looking Back

Looking forward, looking back
Living in the present
Trying to keep on track.

No breath is taken lightly
No heartache will
Keep me back.

Living on the precipice
Yet staying on
That beaten path.

When The Sorcerer Comes To Town

October 25, 2019

Last used Aug. 20/19

When the sorcerer comes to town

The earth will stop and rotate back around
No friendly comment can expose
A sneaky agenda found beneath the folds
Then and only then will laughter stop a train
Heartache be nothing and nothing to blame

When the sorcerer comes to town

Will you be here or over there?
Will I stand tall or fade to fair?
Will trees bend dropping leaves
Upon the ground
Or reach up scratching heaven’s sky?
Don’t know but I will tell you why

When the sorcerer comes to town.

9/11 Angels

September 11, 2019

A lone firefighter stands amid the rubble, September 2001

A solitary fire fighter stands amidst the rubble and smoke in New York City. Days after a Sep. 11 terrorist attack, fires still burn at the site of the World Trade Center. U.S. Navy Photo by Photographer’s Mate 2nd Class Jim Watson. (RELEASED)


9/11 will be seen
As a time of horror
And oh, such bravery
When 9/11 angels were sent to heaven
Too much hate
No saving.

Buildings will dissipate
But lives lost or ruined
Will be remembered
Then, now and for decades
The reason lost on most, everyone
Not known why
Most of all by those who died
Really, not understood by anyone.

Life should not be deemed cheap
All life is sacred, revered
That is my belief
Say a prayer, pray for those
Who lost their lives
And those
Who were the reason.

For if we all can see
We must live together
Work together, love together
In peace and tranquillity
Then it will be ours forever
It will forever

I Journey To My Home

I journey to my home
The place where I was born.

Memories past, life I did before
Some heartache, some laughing then and now.

I journey to the place
I was born, I journey home.
