Show Me If I’m Right

 Show Me If I’m Right ~ Photo by Patrice

Show me if I’m right
And even if
I’m wrong.

Let the path direct me
Where I need to be
Right or wrong.

See the skies
Hold me on the earth
So strong.

And when my days
Are finished
Carry my soul to that world
Where I belong.

Taking Care

March 5, 2020

Taking care to be enveloped
By love felt in your gentle grasp
Smelling the sweet fragrance
In your breath
As the warmth of your embrace
Takes me to a place
So full of heaven
I never want to leave
Leave this
Your warm embrace.

Hold me til my feet do soar
High in the heavens
No tethers or strings
To keep me trapped
Only love felt in all my bones
With my lips kissed by kindness
I know I’ve found heaven
In this, our love
A love
Only we can know.

Without Your Heart

Without your heart
To hold me dear
My world would fall apart
I would surely, be in tears.

The World

Watching the Sunset ~ Photo by Patrice

The world doesn’t wait
For what I have to say
It moves forward, spinning
Light, dark everyday.

The world doesn’t turn back
Nor stop in it’s tracks
Because I’ve fallen, fell
While traversing my path.

The world doesn’t care
If I start to cry
There are others burdened heavy
Some have died.

The world doesn’t leave me
Far behind
It holds me, helps me
Giving me all I need
To survive.

Why We Do What We Do

Perplexed Deer ~ Photo by Patrice



Why we do what we do
Never knew, never understood
Didn’t have a clue.

Standing here, standing there
More or less
Standing anywhere.

Keep me close, hold me far
Never say you did or didn’t
Do that.

Why not come, why not go
All is strange, but then
Who’s to know?

Tender Mercies Envelop Me

August 6, 2015

Chickens and Eggs ~ Illustration by Patrice for the Educational Publisher, Ginn and Company

Tender mercies envelop me
Hold me still, holding me.

The solace I need
Comforting, showing me.

Suffice to say I feel comforted
Safe, in the arms of mercy.
