Tender Is

February 1, 2023
Tender Is ~ Photo by Patrice

Tender is the life
I live.

Tender is the heart
That beats
Kindness to the world.

Tender is the soul
Who knows compassion
Gives.

Yes 
Tender is.

My Heart Beats Soft

January 20, 2023

Mr. T and Me ~ Photo by us

Slowly hearing
My heart beat soft
Taking in the beauty
Beneath, within
And
Aloft.

No words spoken
No words need said
For all is explained
In a beat so soft
Inside
Instead.

I Do Remember

My Mom ~ Photo by Patrice

I do remember
Your loving grace
The innocent smile upon your face
Your strong embrace.

I do remember
Shelter in a troubled world
Your ability of slowing down
A hectic pace.

I do remember
A simple kind gesture
Sweetness on your face
A peaceful existence.

All this I do
I do remember.

Ghosts Of Devils Pass

December 14, 2022

Ghosts Of Devils Pass ~ Photo by Patrice

Ghosts of devils past
Reign
Their leering faces laugh
Shrieking insane
It goes on and on
It seems to last
And
Last and last.

Those devils are just ghosts
Still
They haunt my head, my heart 
They make me relive thoughts
I’d rather not
Those ghosts
Those devils of the past.

Understand

December 5, 2022

Understand ~ Photo by Patrice

Struggling to understand
Struggling
to be fine

But can’t
can’t understand

Understand
What has happened

What
Is no longer fine 

Don’t know
Don’t
understand in any way

Anyway
Anyway I can.

Don’t Know

Don't Know ~ Photo by Patrice

Don’t know 
where I’ve been 
or
what I’ve done. 

The truth
is 

I believe
my life, my journey 
has
just begun.

Hold Me Close

Hold Me Close ~ Photo by Patrice

Hold me close, hold me tight
help me understand
the goings on that happened
have changed
my life.

Let no word be spoken
in anger nor strife
let love begin to heal
the hurt, the pain in this
my only life.

Holding Out, Holding Close

October 6, 2022
Holding Out, Holding Close ~ Photo by Patrice

Holding out, holding close 
Thoughts of yesteryear

Knowing they arrived
Played out
And
Now have disappeared.

Reasons why, reasons known
I can’t decipher
I can’t cry out

All I know
they happened
They’re with me now 

Till I leave this earth, till I too 
Am no longer here.  
~ Patrice

I Don’t Care

September 26, 2022
I Don't Care - Photo by Patrice

I don’t care
If you’re white or black
Whether you’ve seen the sacred cow
Or
Any of that
That makes us different
In thoughts and acts
We are still human beings
We are family
Joined it seems
To live life as best we can
Making full of love for all
All of us
Humans
And
Other beings.

Hold Me Close, Hold Me Tight

Hold Me Close, Hold Me Tight ~ Photo by Patrice

Hold me close, hold me tight 
Let me be safe in your arms forever
And
Thru this dark, dark night. 

Let me see the love you give 
Feel your presence holding me 
Hear your words of wisdom 
Evermore 
Forever, into eternity.
