Maybe You Saw

Maybe You Saw ~ Photo by Patrice

Maybe you saw
What happened to me
Maybe you saw
How unnecessary. 

But then it happened
Happened to you and you see
Nothing to judge
Even if done discreetly.

Stand Tall

Stand tall
Answering the questions
Through your mind. 

Don’t let them grow
Becoming nothing
All you see. 

Don’t let them be the essence
Of what makes up
The you
The sweet, gentle

Leaving, Going Away

I saw you leaving, going away
Your back was turned
You didn’t say
A word of gratitude
Goodbye or even ‘Hey’
You just left
I saw you leave, go away.

My heart was broken
My life in disarray
I had nothing left that day
I saw you you leave
You were gone
You went away.

The Message

The Message ~ Photo by Patrice

Let me think, understand
The message
I want to send out
To all the land. 

Will it be joy and happiness
Anger, sorrow
A world without bliss? 

My choice to make
My choice to live
Makes no difference if
I’m old or just a young kid.

No Help In Sight

No Help In Sight ~ photo by Patrice

No help in sight
No boat rows into my vision 
My sight.

Set adrift
In an ocean of sadness, madness
Awful despair and spite.

I swim frantically towards
What I hope will be my saviour
My rescue.

All that I need
All that I can hold onto
Hold to, so tight.

Comes Into Focus

Comes Into Focus ~ Photo by Patrice

Sometimes it comes
Into focus loud and clear
No words spoken 
Everything is understood
All is
Yes, very clear
What you do with it
Up to you
Your decision to act on
Follow through.

Only I Know

I Know ~ Photo by Patrice

Only I know why
Only you can tell me
So reasons won’t
Become the only thing
I see, I know. 

Going past the known
With calmness
Desperately holding on
Caring not
If it’s right
If I belong. 

Only I know 
Only me has known  
All along.

Wondering What I’m Going To Do

Wondering what I’m going to do
Travel back in time
Or make memories all anew
Finding it hard to let go
Of thoughts and judgements
I’ve had, they just stay
They won’t go.

Heart is full, heart is fine
But it must be considerate
Of those along the way I find
Never to berate
Nor say stinging things
Be good, gentle
Moderate everything.

A Thought Comes

February 28, 2023
A Thought Comes ~ Photo by Patrice

A thought comes 
Then it goes 
Back from where it came 
That place 
No one knows. 

It’s filled with many thoughts 
That if I hold, they’d grow 
Into vast extravagances 
Never thought before 
Never told. 

Oh yes, a thought comes 
Then it goes 
Back from where it came 
That mysterious place 
No one’s been 
No one knows.

Heaven Told Me

February 27, 2023
 Heaven Told Me ~ Photo by Patrice

Heaven told me not to tell
About the kind gestures
You gave to all that needed love

So I didn’t

I didn’t tell 

I held you in my arms’ embrace

To let you know as well 
You are loved 
You are needed 

Please don’t tell 

For heaven needs you
Heaven wants you

To do your work of kindness
You do it oh so well.
