In The Distant Past

May 26, 2020

Arbua Chairs ~ Photo by Patrice

I have lived before
I have lived a life

In the distant past

Good or bad I had
A life before memories
Faded

In the distant past

They didn’t last
As new ones evolved
Different but built on
That life lived

In the distant past.

No One Speaks

April 22, 2020

Last used April 22/20

No one speaks
No one says
The words that will condemn
The dead
To a life lived in after death
Of misery. anger
No justice.

Instead hands hold out
Gentle love
Make the world a happy place
Make the universe
A living, breathing
Wondrous space.

Where hearts are held
Close with care
No one dies
They live forever
In our hearts
In a heaven
Made right here.

Found The Reason

June 11, 2019

I haven’t found the reason
Why I cry
I cry
Nothing seems to stop it
Hold it back
My world is lovely
Yet I always come back
To that.

Maybe in the past
Somewhere
In a life I lived
A life that didn’t last
I’ll find the reason
The reason will be answered
At last
Oh Lord at last.

Fly Thru The Air

September 20, 2018

Fly Thru the Air ~ Photo by Patrice

Fly thru the air, fly
Fly like you just don’t care
People know the way
They want to go
Let them be, come
Come fly with me.

To shores laden with gold
All treasures never seen
Never told.

Reach for the sky
Fly, fly soaring high
Mysteries to unfold
Your life lived, your spirit
Precious and bold.

Then and only then
Will your story truly be told.

Looking out upon the vast history
Of life lived
And made better with dignity.

All is well
And will be the best there is
He saids.

As he reaches down
And kisses me.

Going once, seeing twice
The solution and necessary advice
Let be not in vain
Take the advantage seek and gain
A life lived with such divine
Will last forever
Throughout all time.

Inside The Heart, Within The Soul

March 26, 2018

Study of hands and paint brushes ~ Illustration by Patrice for New Chalice Brushes

Going deep inside the heart
Within the soul
Feeling things I didn’t see
I didn’t know.

Crying words that have
Such knowledge
Words I need
And didn’t know I knew
Or would now know.

Breathe life lived
Deep inside the heart
Created within the soul.

Another World

September 14, 2016

See The Way ~ Photo by Patrice

Another world drifting by
Deep, high in the sky
No words said, no lies or cries
Life lived in another way
A world that gives but never stays.

This world’s sky is lit
By that that seems round
Hardened softness no one knows
Nor hears a sound.

Another world far away
So profound
Guides me by day and night
My path is full of light
I tread on gentle ground.

Another world makes me see
Love in this world
No need to be in that other world
My world is all I need.
