You’re Not The One

You're Not The One ~ Photo by Patrice

I know you’re not the one 
I’m supposed to be. 

I’m the one I need to be 
in my heart, my head. 

All things I do 
that’s who I’m suppose to be. 

You’re but someone 
who accompanies me.

Why Bother

Why bother 
To be in the midst of anxiety 
To dwell 
Within destitution? 

Makes no sense 
To me. 

Be free to see 
The joys of happiness  
The heights of ecstasy. 

It’s a choice to be 
A decision 
made by you, by me 
Let it be.

Can’t See

Can’t see where I’m going 
where I’ve been 
the road is rough 
too many bends 
for me.

Will I come
out to the open? 

See the path before me 
gently sloping
to a valley full of fun  
no sadness nor depression 
so deep. 

this is what I’ll see
will be.

When I hear your heart beat 
I know you are near 

When I hear your heart beat.

Found I could be

The only one of

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
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.

Sorry I Didn’t Help

Sorry I Didn’t Help ~ Photos by Patrice

Sorry I didn’t help
Sorry I didn’t see
All the misfortune
Overwhelming you

It may be tomorrow
When I can see
The way to help you
Set you free.

Until then
Please be patient
Do all you can to understand
Judging me.

Seldom do you see
Different species fight
Like you, like me
Seldom do you see.

Begging For The Answer

Face Study ~ Illustration by Patrice

Begging for the answer
Looking for the right
To make my life a difference
Far, far into the brightest day
The darkest night.

No one will answer
Justify or let it go
Me alone will climb
The altar’s steps
Me alone will be the one
To know.

I spoke to you
You spoke to me
Together we spoke of majesty.
