I Have Seen

I Have Seen ~ Photo by Patrice

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.

A Home Is A Home

A Home Is A Home ~ Photo by Patrice

A home is a home 
no matter the width, the size 
treasured forever 
lived in from birth 
to the time you die. 

Feel the gentle breathing 
of timbers and frame 
holding strong
in winter winds, torrential rains. 

All are welcomed 
with love, no despair 
come 
step into this home. 

There you’ll share 
laughs, great food 
and
a glass of sweet cheer.

Last used May 18/22

I have heard and think 
it is to be
a world full of greatness, love 
and most of all 
beauty. 

Let me see this world 
let me experience it’s beauty 
let me live in peace 
and most of all 
loving harmony.

When I Look Out To Sea

When I Look Out To Sea ~ Photo by Patrice

When I look out to sea 
I see you looking
looking back over
just at me 

The waves roll in
and
back out again 
bringing with them 
a message from overseas 
a message
you sent just for me 

In my thoughts I touch your lips 
say words of love 
then send them
on the wind 
over water, overseas 
to you with love 
just from me.

The Heart Is Cold

January 12, 2022
The Heart Is Cold ~ Photo by Patrice

The heart is cold 
And
Does not beat 
With love 

Just full of hate 
Anger, blatant lies 
No 
Not love 

See it fester 
Boil over
Beating, beating
Not with love.

Close By And Near To Me

Close By And Near To Me ~ Watercolour Illustration by Patrice

Close by and near to me 
The warmth of your body 
Comforts, protects me 
Gives me time 
To see
The answer to all the questions 
Filling me.

Then my world
Too
Will be filled with love 

Unconditionally.

My Birthday Is Near, Yours Was Today

My Birthday Is Near, Yours Was Today ~ Photo by Patrice

My Birthday is near, yours was today

Without your birth 
My heart wouldn’t beat 
My eyes see
Or
My feet walk beneath
Blue skies and aside green seas 

It’s so long ago
You ceased to be amongst us
But still 
I feel your presence here
Inside/beside of me. 

May we love, be forever
Mother – Daughter 
Far
Far into eternity. 
~ Patrice  

Happy Birthday Mom!

Love

September 15, 2021
Love ~ Painting by Patrice

Feeling the movement 
feeling
the love

Moved to emotion 
blanketed
in love 

Vowed to protect 
forever
with love .

Maybe tomorrow 
I’ll see more to be done
thinking, believing
in love.

Innocent Children Lying Dead

Indigenous Children in front of a statue of Egerton Ryerson

A day to reflect 
a day to stay focused 
on tomorrow 
making it better than yesterday. 

The hurts, wrongs and harms
done in the name
of a God 
that would not condone 
such tragedies in anyway. 

Fill your heart with love
fill your soul with remorse 
for the small
innocent children lying dead
in shallow, unmarked graves 
undiscovered
til just yesterday. 

They had done no wrong 
snatched
from their mothers and fathers
one terrible
fateful day. 

Send support
for survivors that made it thru 
endured torture, harm unmitigated pain 
for no reason
not ever, not never
in those horrible years
terrible days.

I Have Seen You

March 17, 2021

Last used March 17/21

I have seen you
your love, honesty
and
virtue.

Knowing
that in-between
are the other things
that
no one wants to see
feel or do.

All
are what makes up
an individual
a life, a soul
and
you.

I have seen you
and
I hope you’ve
seen me
too.
