Hoping, Not Exceeding

Hoping, Not Exceeding ~ Watercolour by Patrice

not exceeding the life 
I’ve been given 
the life I love, share  
and adore. 

Not exceeding, only hoping 
to be the best
I can in this world 
this world I share.

Hope is eternal 
Hope is strength 
Take all good things that come your way 
Believing in a better day.

I Am Feeling Down

September 29, 2020

I Am Feeling Down ~ Photo by Patrice

I am feeling down and all alone
Feel my heart beat a lonesome tone
Crying, standing in the wake
Of not where I want to be.

Hoping the mists of sadness
Will disappear, leaving behind
A world bright and clear
Full of anticipation, happiness
Not this awful, nagging fear and sadness.

Looking For

Hoping, looking
For a breathing space
To be in harmony
Living life as I know
I can and should be.

Trust me, trust you
Trusting the world
To be what I need
What I’m looking for
And that I seek.

Another Year

January 1, 2018

Parker ~ Watercolour Art by Patrice

Another year just today
Came to be, passed away
To the one to come
For a fortunate outcome.

Come join me
In the passage thru
A year
A day
A week or too.

Knowing Not

Knowing not
What the day will bring
Hoping, anticipating
All great things.

Here in my heart
I will bring
The best I can
It will mean everything.

The Reason Why

November 23, 2016

Western Winter Scene  ~ Art by Patrice

Checking out the reason
Knowing the answer why
Crying for the blessed
Never understanding
Or asking why.

Don’t call the known
Nor respond to the one
That wishes only to die
Just moving forward
Hoping that right
Is the only reason why.

Wondering, Wondering

October 1, 2014

Wondering, wondering
What tomorrow will bring
Worried, thinking, hoping
Nothing but good things.

Wondering, wondering
What tomorrow and the days after
Have in store.

Wondering, wondering
Still wondering for sure.

Regrets, None

Regrets, none
That I get.

Morose, you know
You bet.

Melancholy, hoping
Hoping for the best.

Settle, settle not
Go get.

Don’t, don’t forget
It’s your day.

Make it, make it
With no regrets.
~ Patrice
