You Couldn’t Be

You Couldn't Be ~ Photo by Patrice

You couldn’t be 
what I needed 
wanted you to be. 

No matter
how hard you tried 
you couldn’t be. 

You couldn’t be 
all that I needed 
desired you to be. 

I see you couldn’t be 
you couldn’t be.

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 
step into this home. 

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

You touch me tenderly 
I feel your love 
No matter what happens 
I know I’ll forever be 
In forever love.

I Haven’t Been

July 8, 2021

I haven’t been 
the one to love

I haven’t been

I haven’t been 
the one to cherish

I haven’t been

I haven’t been
no matter what you say 

I know

I know the truth 
I know 

I haven’t been.

Hold Me Close, Hold Me Tight

Hold Me Close, Hold Me Tight ~ Watercolour & Pencil Art by Patrice

Hold me close, hold me tight
keep the light on
the darkest night.

Let no one say the words
that cut the heart
no matter
all its great might.

Keep me safe, keep me on
the path that’s right
then and only then my world will turn
and be alright.

A Million Miles Away

Sun Flower ~ Photo by Patrice

A million miles away
The sun shines
No matter
The time of day.

My heart must bring
That sun from far
To my day, my walk
My way.

Holding close all
That’s good
All I need to make
It thru today.

From a million miles away
The sun shines
Shines on me
As I’m on my way.

Don’t Understand

Pile of Wood ~ Photo by Patrice

Can’t figure out
Don’t understand
My place in the universe
Who’s here to tell me
Who will direct my path
Just where do I stand?

Answers don’t come easily
No matter how many times
I ask
Don’t understand.

Holding On, Holding Tight

Holding on, holding tight
Steeling to make it thru the night
While thinking of basking
In the broad daylight
Making no matter of the matters
That matter tonight.
