The Breath Breathe

The Breath Breathe ~ Photo by Patrice

Hearing the breath breathe
Is heartening to us 
Cause tomorrow may bring
Happiness or sadness 
Or something 
We haven’t seen.

But today we’ll hear
The breath breathe
And know
That just for today
We’re living, breathing
We’re okay.

Living in the
Listening to the solitude 
Feeling all emotions 

Maybe tomorrow will be
But for now living today
Where all is

Hoping for
Drops of wisdom 
Dripping knowledge
My life.

 Up to me
Drink deep 
This gift
I’ve been given

Make the best
Going forward 
A world I’ve built 
And living

The day before

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

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

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

Big Sky ~ Photo by Patrice

Nobody said I had to know
Nobody knew whether
I needed to go
To a place so true
Where the sky is a radiant blue
The grass beneath soft, tender feet
Welcomes all
And holds them safe
Need not go to another place.

Nobody knew
Nor did they say
What would happen in a place
So full of beauty, dignity
And quiet grace
That I know, I’ll live, I’ll see today.

Holding Heart In Hand

Holding heart in hand
Living, doing the best
That I can

No looking back
Nor focused
On what’s ahead

Staying in the moment
Knowing it’s where
I should be

In my dream
I see fortune full of destiny
Mine to have
Mine to be
Let me begin living
This my dream
In that destiny
I see.

Heaven helped, heaven loved
Nothing lost for that is love.

Holding close, holding tight
Living in it’s radiance tonight.

Beat Myself Up

Beat myself up
Curse the way
That got me here.

Need to let up
Need to be happy
That I’m living, existing
With breath to breathe
In this atmosphere.

Forget the bad, the negative
And the sad
Seeing only pleased
And grateful inside of me.

Forgive me and thee
Forgive and live
Live here
On the right side of happy.

It Started In My Head

Great Danes from Purina's Hall of Fame ~ Watercolour by Patrice

It started in my head
It grew in my heart
My pen let it out
That painting, that writing
That perfect piece of art.

It’s voice did cry
‘Bring me out to the world
Not living just in your head’
I heard those words from
That perfect piece of art.

Begged to be seen
Begged to be read
That idea, that writing
That perfect piece of art.

Now the world can see
What my pen brought out
That lived in my head
Grew in my heart
That painting, that writing
That perfect piece of art.
