You Haven’t Been The One

August 31, 2022
You Haven't Been The One ~ Illustration by Patrice for the Educational Publisher, Ginn and Company

I know 
you haven’t been
the one
to make a difference
in my life.

That can only be
has to be
my purpose
my only purpose
forever, ever be.

Need To Find

July 12, 2022
Need To Find ~ Watercolour Painting by Patrice

Need to find 
So desperately
The source of happiness 
All things that give life 
Making a life 
So divine 

May I forget 
Miserable 
May I need not
Remorse 
For I’ve found the beauty and joy
In this life 
This
That’s my life 
Of course.

Solely Knowing

Solely Knowing ~ Photo by Patrice

Solely knowing the past, present 
and the distant future
are one. 

They are my life, my breath 
and
my soul. 

Let it be good 
let it leave a lasting impression 
on those that know. 

This life I’m living 
this life 
this, the only one I’ll ever know.

Pleasantly

Pleasantly helping, pleasantly being 
the most my world
my life, myself
can be. 

There’s no better one to know
then me 
there’s nothing I want, desire 
except to be. 

The one who loves
cares and sees
beauty in all life and pleasantly being
all I can be.

Thinking And Planning

Thinking And Planning ~ Photo by Patrice

Thinking and planning 
figuring out 
what
I’ll do today 

The future’s open 
ready 
waiting
for my decision 

Exciting
these feelings  
I’m letting be real 

First
in my mind 
then
in my life 

And
finally

My heart.

I Know I’ve Been Lost

I Know I've Been Lost ~ Watercolour Painting by Patrice

I know
I’ve been lost 
in the wilderness
of
low self esteem 

Climbing out 
has been hard 
rocks, crevasses 
unholy shards
pierce my skin, my life
my thoughts 

Still I climb 
I push, pull and shove 
to
a glorious world 
full of
grace, courage 
and
self-love.

The Darkest Night

The Darkest Night ~ Photo by Patrice

Let me hold you tight 
Protect you through 
The darkest night 

Let no harm come to you 
As I watch for wrong to come sneaking in 
On that darkest night 

I will put myself in front of you 
Protect and sacrifice my life 
So that you may live thru this darkest
Darkest night.

First Snowfall Brings Brightness And Clarity

November 29, 2021
First Snowfall Brings Brightness And Clarity ~ Photo by Patrice

First snowfall brings
Brightness and clarity to my life 
Looking at things covered in white 
Sleeping now
Thru the winter night. 

To awaken
All new, fresh and bright 
Once spring’s breezes melt 
This
Winter’s white. 

For now I see oh so clearly 
What the universe wants me to know 
I’m part of all life,
All seasons
Spring, summer, fall
and
Especially winter’s white snowfall.

Curiously Wondering

Curiously Wondering ~ Photo by Patrice

Curiously Wondering
What is to be 
What will become of my world 
My life
In the years to come
To be. 

Will I grow old  
Hair turned white 
Or
Just go to sleep 
Forever
One night? 

Questions asked 
Answers
I don’t know
Time is the only one 
That
Really knows.

Hoping for
Listening
To 
Drops of wisdom 
Dripping knowledge
Into
My life.

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

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