Let Me Be The One

April 9, 2019

Spike & Grinch ~ Watercolour Art by Patrice

Don’t let me be the one
The one that cries out lies
Never happy with her life
Always, always helping no one.

Don’t let me be the one
Who sees nothing pure or good
Looking every time
To the bad, the sad
Let me be not that one.

Let me be the one
Who sees beauty in everything
Feels life in the wind, earth and sky
A presence who just can’t
And won’t be denied
Let me, let me be that one.

Some Days

Some days are sad
In remembering the past
The heartache and anguish
Seems to last and last.

You know yeas have passed
You know all have moved on
Yet still some days are hard
The sadness seems to go
On and on.

Feeling

Feeling lonely, feeling sad
Feels like I’ve been bad.

Feeling so much
Feeling nothing, feels numb.

Feeling heartache
Then feels like I should run.

Away from all this feeling
Feel something no, feel none.

Feeling Down, Don’t Know Why

August 5, 2015

Feeling down, don’t know why
Heart is cold, feeling nothing
Nothing that can be told
Or reasoned why
Angry most of all at what I don’t recall.

Then there is my head
My mind it’s telling stories full of dread
It saids there is no way things will be right
Just give up, curl up and sleep
Til late tonight.

That’s when my heart beats up
Pounding, ‘Don’t give up!’
I can make it right, deep breath
The rest will come
Before falling of sweet night.

Listen
Hear things dear to your heart
Let your mind wander but don’t let it start
The bad, the sad or that which will taint
The faint of heart.

Hunger So

March 17, 2015

Hunger so
Need the help
Not sure why.

Please Lord
Let me not die
Holding on to something
That won’t even cry.

Hunger so sad
Cause
Not sure why.

I Wonder What Was It Like

October 10, 2014

Photo by Mom and Dad

I wonder what was it like
When I was born
Did I cry right away
Or was I compelled?

Did I know what had happened
Was I frightened to be out
Of the only world I’d known
Did I even know where I was?

The answers I don’t know
No one left to tell
Gone are the memories
I may have once held.

The business of new life
Took over and I cried
Sad to be leaving
The soft, warm womb
Where my mother kept me
Safe and alive.

I may not remember
No one left to tell
But I know I was born and
With love I was held.

It’s Going To Be Okay

July 3, 2014

It’s going to be okay
All this badness will fade away
It’s going to be okay.

Tears will be for not
It’s going to be okay
On this sad but sunny day
I know, I pray
It’s going to be okay.
