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

Looking up to the sky
Looking for the answer
The reason why
The solid earth beneath my feet
Radiates love
Leaving no room
For defeat.

My mouth says words
Needed to be said
My hands hold
Thankfulness for all I see
And for the ground
On which I tread
Here, alongside thee.

This Morning I’m Struggling

April 4, 2014

This morning I’m struggling
Unsure, crushing blur
Can’t see around the bend
Can’t see free or happy.

Looking, trying to see
Be the good in this my journey
But this morning
It evades me.

Only feel failure, sadness
Struggling, struggling
Just don’t know
What or where I should go.

A lot have it worst I know
Makes me feel guilty
For I know I’m blessed
Have so much, so many opportunities
Yet this morning I struggle
I’m struggling.

Looking, Looking

January 16, 2014

Looking, looking
For the right
Wherever it may be
I’m looking, looking
Left and right.

No one can tell
Just where to go
How to find but you know
I’m looking, looking
If need be all night.

My sight may not be
What it was or should be
But I’ll keep
Looking, looking
To make it right.

Looking Back Down

Stormy Road ~ Photo by Patrice

Looking back down
The road I’ve been
Always knowing I could
Be there in a second
That place I’ve been.

So sad to know
So sad to be
Looking back down
The road I’ve been.

Don’t look back
Turn around and see
A new road
Opening up for me.

Full of promise
Full of majesty
Heartbreak gone
Back down the road
I’ve been.
