I Have Been There

Sad Golden ~ Illustration by Patrice

I have been there
Seen everything
Held my breath
Tried not to scream.

Sadness mounts
Envelops me
Reason why
Not only me.

Maybe tomorrow
All will be ok
Til then
I’ll live thru
This troubling day.

Begging For The Answer

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.

The Moment

Enjoying the moment
Enjoying the scene
All its well
And in some instances

Blessed be this moment
This moment I’m in
Only me in this moment
And never to occur

Are You Listening?

Are you listening?
Are you listening or is it me?
Is it me whispering?
Whispering silent messages
Softly on the breeze.

Cannot tell the difference
Cannot tell or sell
The words coming
Coming clear only to me
Are you listening?

Are you listening?
Are you listening alongside me?
Or is it only
Only me?
