We Keep Secrets

We keep secrets
We hold them tight
Never exposed
To see the morning light.

We keep secrets
Silent, secretive
They speak not a word
Sometimes to the grave
They’re carried, never heard.

We keep secrets
Untold secrets
We grasp them tight
Feeling the burden
The weight not light.

Sweet Dreams

March 6, 2018

Rottie Sleeping ~ Photo by Patrice

Sweet dreams come slowly
Quietly moving thru
Leaving behind visions
Memories I hold onto
Sometimes vivid
Then maybe vague
They play out active
There inside my head.

I feel I could touch
Hold tight
The figures in sweet dreams
That come to me
In the darkness
And early morning light.

Rules Are Broken

July 4, 2012

Rules are broken
Maybe they are meant to be
Don’t hold tight
Release to let them free.
Then we’ll see
What will come about
For you and for me.
