You Haven’t Been The One

You Haven't Been The One ~ Illustration by Patrice for the Educational Publisher, Ginn and Company

I know 
you haven’t been
the one
to make a difference
in my life.

That can only be
has to be
my purpose
my only purpose
forever, ever be.

I Have Felt

I have felt
still feel you here 

I know
know you are forever 
with me there 

I’ll try my best 
to let you lead me 
where I need to go 

Guiding me 
that treacherous path 

Coming out to a world
full of love and beauty

No One Said

No One Said ~ Photo by Patrice

No one said
nor did they show 
the way to glory 
all beauty to be bestowed  

All was hidden 
deep inside 
barely known
to anyone outside 

you say 

Why would this be? 

No one says 
nor did they show 
how to get there 
the way to go 

No one said 

No one said 
this I know.

I Have Seen

I have seen 
I haven’t been
the one  you want 
this I know 
I haven’t been. 

Days go by 
nights seem 
to melt into nothingness 
where nothing lives 
nothings been. 

Still you’re on my mind 
and I have seen 
there’s a chance 
you’ve heard my voice 
you’ve seen. 

I’m here
I live, I love 
I am
a human being.

Enough ~ Painting by Patrice

never enough 

is the trouble with 
not enough 

it out, making sure
I know 
what I need, what I have 
that it’s always
just enough.

I Have Made It

June 7, 2022
1st in Trial Award ~ Me and my Great Faldo

I have made it 
even thou there were those 

Who said

It won’t be so
couldn’t be, would never be 

Hear their calls of criticism
hear their snorts of disbelief


I can’t do this 
this that I know I need too
know I can do 
can succeed and complete.

The World Is Round

The World Is Round ~ Photo by Patrice

I have found
The world is round
what comes up
go down

No teetering
on the edge
no long drop off
round and round

What comes
comes back around

I know
I know
The world is round.

Just You, Just Me

January 27, 2022
Last used Jan. 27/22

Together we’ll be
walking thru wonder 

Just you, Just me 

We’ll see all 
the fascinating treasures 
laid out to see 

Just you, Just me 

We’ll walk in sunlight 
rays warm and comforting 

Just you, Just me 

I know you wonder how I know all this 
I’ll tell you 
its a secret between  

Just you, Just me.

I Should Not Believe

December 8, 2021
I Should Not Believe ~ Cartoon by Patrice

I know
I should not believe 
That all is well 
That’s just make believe 

Time has come
To stand still 
Feel the earth move 
See reality 

Ugly, beauty 
All of it understood 
Accepting, unconditionally 

Still believing 
In the grace of God 
I will believe.

I Know

December 6, 2021
I know ~ Watercolour by Patrice

I know
my heart is broken 

I know
life has stood still 

I know
I must move forward 

I know
my head, my heart, my legs, my feet are standing still 

I know
that anguish will be a ever present 

I know
that tears will flow 

I know 

I know 
but still 


I love you so.
