Tender Hearts

Tender Hearts ~ Photo by Jennifer Clark

Tender hearts do not break  
They stand their ground
So very strong
To everyone They know. 

They change lives 
They show kindness, love
Will grow
In places so vacant 
So cold. 

Tender hearts
Need a chance 
A chance to embrace
The lost, the hurt. 

Hold them
Till they too bestow 
Tender heart’s kindness 
To all 
All they know.

No More Today

Today, Tonight - Photo by Patrice

No more today, none tonight
Move on
Glow, bask in the broad daylight
Have the feelings
You need embracing you
Today, tonight.

For tomorrow will come
The sun rise
The moon move
Through glowing skies
Giving happiness, joy
All day, all night.

Your feelings
Will be
What you need
The same as tomorrow
Today, tonight

This My Life ~ Illustration by Patrice

I hold in my hands
The very essence
This my life. 

I cherish in my heart
All the things
That make it so blessed
All my life. 

I seek to find
Meaning, strength in the path
I take, the people I meet 
Making it the best I can
My only life. 

This is my prayer
This is my life 
I will take it take it to the top
Surpass all the rest
Going to
The highest heights. 

Yes I will
This is my life.

Home is heart, heart is home

Speak softly

Let no one feel alone

Be together
Whether near or far apart

Act according
To the followings of your heart.

Our Destinies

Our Destinies ~ Photo by Patrice

How do we know
Can we see
Hear the right words
To guide
Our destinies?  

Answers not given
Ways not seen
Life itself
Obscure our path 
Our destinies?

When I Hear Your Call

When I Hear Your Call ~ Watercolour by Patrice

When I hear your call
My heart skips a beat
My mind thinks of all the things
I love about you
Oh, so sweet. 

When you had to go away
My days were grim
My heart was sad
My eyes did cry. 

Now again 
I can hear your voice
Taste your lips and behold you
With my eyes. 

My world is right
I’m loved
I’ll go thru the day
Without a sad or lonely cry.

Totally Unbelievable
Absolutely fantastic
Will this happen
How will it be?

Can’t wait to see
All come about
That’s going to happen
Just for me.

Comes Into Focus

Comes Into Focus ~ Photo by Patrice

Sometimes it comes
Into focus loud and clear
No words spoken 
Everything is understood
All is
Yes, very clear
What you do with it
Up to you
Your decision to act on
Follow through.

Hearing Words

Hearing words in my head
They tell of times past
Sometimes things ahead

Listen well’

Is what they said

‘For in telling, we give you
A chance to know
Know how to deal with
What has happened
And what is still ahead’.

Only I Know

March 16, 2023
I Know ~ Photo by Patrice

Only I know why
Only you can tell me
So reasons won’t
Become the only thing
I see, I know. 

Going past the known
With calmness
Desperately holding on
Caring not
If it’s right
If I belong. 

Only I know 
Only me has known  
All along.
