Holding On

Holding on
Holding fast
Letting the world twirl round.

Standing on solid ground
I hold on
Hold on, hold on.

Holding On

Squirrel Holding On ~ Photo by Patrice

Holding on
Standing firm
Not backing up just to confirm
Going nowhere but here.

Holding on despite
The awful atmosphere
You will tell, I’ll be told
All the reasons
This should not unfold.

Then on we’ll go
Never looking back
For we’re holding on
We’re on track.

Holding On, Holding Tight

Holding on, holding tight
Steeling to make it thru the night
While thinking of basking
In the broad daylight
Making no matter of the matters
That matter tonight.

Optimistic For Heaven’s Sake

June 12, 2018

Patrice at Ganaraska



Optimistic for heaven’s sake
Moving forward
No hand on the brake
Thinking thoughts of gratitude
Holding on to all
No hurting feet or pounding head
Just clear breath
Breathing in and out
Thankful that I’m alive
I’m not dead.

I Wonder What

I wonder what
I will say
What I’ll see
In the morning
Just before me.

No breath is taken
Holding on
Moving forward
Knowing I have
Heaven and earth
Backing me.

Then It Happened

February 7, 2018

Lazy Summer Days ~ Watercolour Painting by Patrice

Then it happened going far from away
To the depths of happiness
Making my year, my day.

Holding on with joyous gladness
Heading thru the mired deep
Coming out in the other happiness
Feeling pleasure ever so sweet.

The Sky Is A Wanderer

November 7, 2017

Fall Leaves ~ Photo by Patrice

The sky is a wanderer in the sky
Not knowing how, when or why
Like a traveller moving on
Stopping now then going beyond
The edge of tomorrow
While seeking solace in a world
Looking up
Travelling, holding on.
