Let Me Settle Down

Let me settle down
My anger now is very, very profound.

You took a life, meant nothing to you
Just something in your way
With a swipe, you took a life away
Didn’t miss a stride nor did your heart skip a beat
You went on like nothing bad marked your soul
Or was there blood on your saintly hands
You smiled, laughed, no trace upon your angelic face
Of the death someone has to face
A death you caused, you alone.

It may have been just a little creature
Living life in the space you called your own
You crushed the breath from that creature’s chest
You ground your shoe in the sand
Leaving no trace of a life
That may have been so grand.

Life is precious
Intertwined with all we see
Combined to grow, prosper alongside one another
Whether we walk, run, leap or crawl
You’re not alone nor can…

How Do I Know

How do I know, know what to do
How do I know
Please tell me the path
The best way
The right things to do.

I’m not alone, can’t be alone
For everything, all that I know
I know you’ve told me
Everything
I’ve needed to know to do.

Not Alone

September 17, 2018

Wood Smiles and Sad ~ Photo by Patrice

Can’t believe I’m not alone
For there at my side
A presence stays
While I live, work, love, play
And some day, die.

Not alone, never to be
My journey directed
Choreographer, just for me.

I am loved no matter what
I have a place to stand
My back protected
My heart in loving hands.

My protector, confidant, spirit guide
May be those
Who have already lived
And now, have died.

Not that I care from where
They come
Just to feel that presence
At my side.

Will make my road
Smoother, a joy to live
Oh, such a ride!

Hear My Heart Call

June 20, 2018

Hear my heart call
Hear that quiet voice
Murmur words of love
Filling all with grace.

Hear my heart call
Words to ease the pain
Sounds made from
A sweet refrain.

Hear my heart call
I’m not alone
Forever with me
In all my journeys.

Hear my heart call
Listen, listen to that sound
Hear my heart
Hear my heart call.

I’ll Take A Stand

May 9, 2018

My Feet ~ Photo by Patrice

I’ll take a stand
And hold still
No breath will breathe
No heart beat
Only sounds are my feet
Standing still, holding fast
Protecting all
That must now last.

Then the gull cries
Mustering forces
That heed that shrieking call
Not forlorn, not alone
I stand, holding still
Upright, strong and tall
We’re together
And together we will conquer all.

We Are Joyous

We are joyous
Moving along, forward
Into a distant future.

Hesitate, reach down
Look around, see
All the wonders
Growing
Living by your side.

Know
You’re not alone
Nor ever going to be.

For intertwined
In your soul, mine
And all that
Has ever been.

Life is precious
Intertwined with all we see
Combined to grow, prosper alongside one another
Whether we walk, run, leap or crawl
You’re not alone nor can you make it alone
Don’t kill those whose heart sings a different beat
Instead remember
We need one another in this life we been shown.
