Can’t See

September 1, 2022
Can't See ~ Photo by Patrice

Can’t see where I’m going 
nor
where I’ve been 
the road is rough 
too many bends 
for me.

Will I come
out to the open? 

See the path before me 
gently sloping
to a valley full of fun  
no sadness nor depression 
so deep. 

Hopefully 
this is what I’ll see
will be.

Solely Told Her

July 28, 2022
Solely Told Her ~ self-illustration by Patrice

Solely 
told her what 
I think 
no anger, sadness 
did I convey 

Nothing more 
than encouragement 
nothing more 
could 
would I say 

Moving on 
believing 
I made a difference 
in herself 
this hour, this day 

Nothing
more 
nothing else 
did I say.

My Heart Seems Broken

May 26, 2022
My Heart Seems Broken ~ Photo by Patrice

My heart seems broken
the world appears unfair
direction is lost
my world, my heart
are in
such deep despair.

It may be
tomorrow
the sun will shine
bringing healing, loving light
everywhere

But for now
in
this moment
all I feel is sadness, heartache
and
despair.
~ Patrice

My heart, my thoughts go out to those in Texas who have suffered such tragedy.

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

Calgary Storm ~ Photo by Patrice

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.
