Terrible Times Do Occur

Terrible times do occur
Marching lines, men’s faces obscure
No more joy, lightly skipping breeze
Heartache, morse pretty bleak.

Then the sun shines oh so bright
Lighting the way both day and night
No more tears, sadness blame
All is well once again.

You See

You See ~ Photo by Patrice

You see
I’ve been there too
I know the heartache, the sadness  
Nothing, no one is left all alone 

You see
someone, somewhere has been there too  
we’ve never been alone 

You see
now you can be for someone else
the same as was done for you 

You see 
I know you see now too.

You Don’t Know

You Don't Know ~ Photo by Patrice

 

Of course you don’t know 
The sadness, the heartache 
I shouldn’t know. 

You see the life 
That seems to glow. 

Sometimes it’s a lie 
Sometimes you see I cry 
But 
Then if course 

You don’t know.

Happiness

August 18, 2020

Happiness ~ Photo by Patrice

You haven’t seen
the last of heartbreak or the door
to
Happiness

Sadness, pain frolic on the path
tripping all attempts at prosperity
with
Happiness

They stand there laughing hard
mocking attempts at joy
and
Happiness

Take a breath, a deep sigh
all this will pass and once again
you’ll bask in the pleasures
of
Exquisite Happiness.

I Feel Your Presence

August 6, 2020

Fall Leaves ~ Photo by Patrice

I feel your presence
I feel your breath
Warm and sweet
Upon my neck.

I reach for your arms
Your body most sublime
But empty handed
Here I stand.

I think I have lost my mind
My soul mourns
Wails a tale of sadness
Laughter gone.

Maybe tomorrow
I’ll join you
In the bye, in the already
Long gone.

Thinking About The World Today

July 29, 2020

Golden in Trouble ~ Illustration by Patrice for Dogs In Canada Magazine

Thinking
About the world today
About all the people who have
Died
Passed away.

Most not their fault
A virus
A plague raced thru
Taking
Their lives away.

Sadness
Not gladness
Is the atmosphere
In this
Our world today.

Not Sure The Reason Why

June 11, 2020

Not sure the reason why
The sky cries
Weeps and wails
Crashing thunder
Before my very eyes

Anger, sadness
Blessed love
Not sure
Not sure which is
The reason why.

Remember When

May 28, 2020

Jackal ~ Illustration by Patrice for Holt, Rinehart and Winston's reader, 'Flights Near And Far'

Remember when a laugh and smile
Were the only thing that made
The day’s itinerary song?

Remember when laughter
And carefree days lasted
All year long
The thought of winter didn’t
Come to mind
Didn’t come along.

Then there was when
A door opened up
And seriousness came along.

No smiles, no laughter
The whole day long
Winter winds blew
And the heart was frozen
In sadness
Crying was the only song.

Life Is A Joy

Life is a joy
Nowhere is there room
For sadness
Heartache nor doom.

If you see that
All comes to be
Just what
Just what you need.

Some Days

November 14, 2018

Wood Violets ~ Photo by Patrice

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.
