Sadness Again

Sadness again rears it’s head
As I think of those we’ve lost
Those that are now dead.

Lived lives we did share
Held them close, loved them
But now despair.


Remember those gone
Not so much with sadness
But rejoicing love forever long.

Words have gone
Lost, forgotten, laying strewn
Across a uncaring lawn.

No time to pick them up
No time to remember
What has been forgot.

Words were said
Yet no one remembers exactly
Or just what.

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…

Remember Me?

Remember me?
Remember when?

When the world was round
The sky a vibrant blue
And you and I were love so true

Remember me?

I remember you.

When Your Heart Is Sore

When your heart is sore
Your tears won’t dry
You’re not alone
We hear your cries.

Remember too
All who we’ve said goodbye
Are with us still
Only running now
Where angels fly.
~ Patrice

– My deepest sympathies to Jan and Doug in their heartbreaking loss.

What Has Happened?

Filtered Sunlight ~ Photo by PatriceWhat has happened?
What will be today?
No one telling’
Just moving, moving on their way.

Couldn’t hear directions
Couldn’t see the way
Couldn’t, couldn’t remember my journey
From that other day.

Must trust the Master
Must believe, believe he’ll guide me
On this that is
My journey’s way.

Last Day Of A Time

Last day of a time gone thru
When everything’s done
Came back lived by me, by you.

Looking forward to days ahead
Not back at neither sorrow or dread
Only joy, “Remember it” she said.

Bring it forward to this New Year
Live it to the fullest
With much good cheer!

For Absolutely No Reason

For absolutely no reason
I’m sent to the past
Made to remember things
I’d rather pass.

For no reason
They breathe life again
Making me remember
All over again and again.

The outcome is no different
The end is the same
For absolutely no reason
I remember again.

No Words To Say

April 9, 2018

Broken Robin's Nest ~ Photo by Patrice

No words to say on this terrible, terrible day
My heart, my thoughts are with you
Those who have lost so much.

Remember their laugh, their jokes
Their expertise in playing hockey
Winning, skating, scoring
Checking, hat trick touch
They did it all.

They stand with you still
Holding up, holding close
You, their folks.
Til you too can come
To their fantastic playoff game.

You’ll watch them score
No heartache anymore
A team unsurpassed
Watch them play
Winning in your hearts today
A love you’ll never lose
No more.
~ Patrice

My prayers are with you the family, friends, those who knew the ones on the Humboldt Bronco bus, whose lives were tragically cut short on Friday.
May they rest in peace and love. ❤

Memories are with me
I wish had died

Memories of an existance
I think of and cry

No memories of happiness
Or pleasure survive

Remember memories
That took me out

Of the memories
That just make me sigh

Memories, my memories
That make me cry.
