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

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.

Fulfil The Heart

March 16, 2021

Last used March 16/21

Fulfil the heart
the soul
follow your dreams
to the end
of
the storied road.

Pause
let this journey sink in
soak your soul
in
the many varied stories
you’ll experience
be told.

Fill
your heart with love
let it be carried
forever
in your soul.

Courting Life, Fleeing Death

February 24, 2021

Courting Life, Fleeing Death ~ Illustration by Patrice

Courting life, fleeing death
Time passes
Taking no regard for
The rest.

Holding close, pushing aside
All things
I love, despise.

In tomorrow
The world may change
Leaving everything
Just the same.

May the sun shine bright
On the season
May joy and happiness
Be yours tonight.

With all things glorious
May you feel love
Tonight.

I Forgot To Remember

November 19, 2020

I Forgot To Remember - Photo by Patrice

I forgot to remember
All the things you did to me
I left them in the trash
Garbage
Now to me.

No more will I cry
Remorsefully
No more will I be held
Captive
By those things
You did to me.

My life is better now
The sun shines on a spirit
Free of anger
Love is the feeling
I feel here
Inside of me.

Feeling, Reaching Out, Holding Close

October 20, 2020

Feeling, Reaching Out, Holding Close ~ Photo by Patrice

Feeling, reaching out, holding close
Not sure what this is all about.

Taste the anger, spit it out
Drink deep love, give it to all
All about.

See the sun rise, breathing life
Into a blue, sweet sky.

Experience the night
Enveloping all in a blanket warm and pure
Kept safe til darkness disappears.

I feel this, I reach out, hold close
For I now know what it’s all about.

I Don’t Know

July 24, 2020

Broken House ~ Photo by Patrice

I don’t know
What the heart doesn’t care
Buried in messed up
I sip from a cracked, broken cup
Tears run
My heart weeps
For the love, the mystery
That wasn’t mine
To keep.

Can’t Help But See

June 12, 2020

Black Swan ~ Photo by Patrice

Can’t help but see
The world living, unfolding
As it should be.

Can’t help but feel
The soft and gentle caring
Beneath my feet.

Can’t help but hear
A song of love
Filling each of my ears.

Can’t help but live
A life full of harmony
Can’t help but see all this, around me.
~ Patrice
