Courting Life, Fleeing Death

February 24, 2021

Courting Life, Fleeing Death ~ Illustration by Patrice

Courting life, fleeing death
Time passes
Taking no regard for
The rest.

Holding close, pushing aside
All things
I love, despise.

In tomorrow
The world may change
Leaving everything
Just the same.

Holding On, Holding Close

 Holding On, Holding Close ~ Watercolour by Patrice

Holding on, holding close
All that I love
All that means the most
To me
Throughout.

All that is dear
No more will I let go
To lose, to discard
Oh no!

Hold on, hold close
Today, tonight
Throughout all this
My life.

Holding Close

Holding close
being in the beauty of it
all.

Losing nothing, saying less
cause we are part of the picture
overall.

A Million Miles Away

May 20, 2020

Sun Flower ~ Photo by Patrice

A million miles away
The sun shines
No matter
The time of day.

My heart must bring
That sun from far
To my day, my walk
My way.

Holding close all
That’s good
All I need to make
It thru today.

From a million miles away
The sun shines
Shines on me
As I’m on my way.

Memories Last

January 29, 2020

Sunning Spike ~ Watercolour by Patrice

Memories last
to give us space to remember
those gone from this place.

Holding close, holding long
remembering all the snuggles, caresses
Thru the night so long.

Heartache cries missing those loved
now my heart’s alone
a empty place.

I can’t, won’t forget
your loving soul’s a memory
all that I have left.

Searching For Something New

April 6, 2016

Karen's Love ~ Watercolour Commission by Patrice

Searching for something new
Searching amongst
The breathe of that
That I once knew.

Grasping, holding close
Memories I loved
See them fall away
Replacing now all that yesterday.

Searching for
New memories untold
Searching for a new life
A new mould.

Searching, searching
But no one knows
Nor will they let it be
As of yet, let it be told.

Heaven Helped

Heaven helped, heaven loved
Nothing lost for that is love.

Holding close, holding tight
Living in it’s radiance tonight.

Beautiful White Neither Dark Nor Cold

November 23, 2013

Snow Blanket ~ photo by Patrice

Beautiful white neither dark nor cold
In the night holding close
Tender ones needing hearts warmed
By a cloak of soft winter snow.
