I Have Heard Your Voice

September 1, 2020

I have heard your voice
Felt your gentle soul
Know your touch is
What I feel
When soft breezes blow.

I don’t need to see you
For I know you’re near
Holding me close forever
Forever, my sweet love
My sweet dear.

My Heart Is Heavy, My Soul Cold

June 8, 2020

My heart is heavy, my soul cold

Wherever I wander
I know
The sky will be there
The earth a treasure trove
Of experiences

I will live, I will know

Together
They will pull me out
Out of this deep hole

My heart will lighten
My soul no longer be
A deathly cold.

Beauty Is What I Behold

April 27, 2020

Beauty is what I behold
When looking out
Onto the board expanse
Nothing but beauty to behold.

My eyes see fields, meadows
Hills and lovely valleys
Where creatures big and small
Live, loving all.

As I lay my head down tonight
I’ll once again
Behold these images of beauty
In vivid dreams throughout
This, my sleeping night.

I Know Why I’m Here

October 30, 2019

German Rottie ~ Painting by Patrice

I know why I’m here
Know the world spins and turns
I know sadness and grief
And
I know great joy and ecstasy.

Yes
I know what it means
To be in this world
And part of everything.

Something

May 15, 2019

Heron in the Creek ~ Photo by Patrice

The day before
Something.

Not sure what that is
But I know, know it’s
Something.

I’ll go thru my life
Living it to the highest heights
It’ll be
Something.

Then afterwards
When all is said and done
I’ll sit back and say
That was
Something.

Self Portrait ~ Illustration by Patrice

I can’t be scorned, belittled or debased
I am alive, I have survived
And
I know, know what I need to do.

I Live In The Past

February 12, 2019

Model T on the hill ~ Photo by Patrice

I live in the past
I see those days
I hear that heartbeat
Unable to make
Those old thoughts
Go away.

But

Not all sadness I feel
For joy and gladness
Support me today
I know I had, had it all
In the life I lived
Yesterday.

Do I Tell The Stories

November 7, 2018

Connie's Airedales ~ Watercolour by Patrice

Do I tell the stories
I know
Or do I let them go.

My heart doesn’t know
The way
The way I should go.

My spirit tells me
Feel the earth
Breathe the skies.

And the beings that live
Purely
Will guide you, they’ll never lie.

Feeling

Grasses - Photo by Patrice

Feeling
The grass grow
Seeing
Leaves wave in the breeze
I know
Know there is a God
And
He’s taking care of me.

Looking For

March 7, 2018

Costa Rican Raccoon ~ Photo by Brent

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.
~ Patrice
