Hearing The Words Spoken

Hearing the words spoken
In love and respect
Makes my heart leap and regret
All the things that I’ve said.

Not believing the actions
The smiles
The love I did get.

I know there was nothing pretend
All was truthful, out in the open
Love with no end.

I will embrace all that I have
Give back, be happy
Never again be sad.

For this that you’ve given me
I will embrace, love you forever
It’s our chosen place.

Tenderness And Wonder

Tenderness and wonder
A childlike holiday.

Smiles, kind gestures lead
Guide the way.

Laughter and hearty jokes
Make the hard an easy time
Almost like play.

No one falters
All are in
On their merry, lighthearted way.

I Can See

October 18, 2014

I can see her body lying there
I can see her breath move up and down
Now between life and afterlife
Her mind is slowing down
She greets the ones who’ve gone before
She smiles and wags her tail
My hand it brings her back
She knows it’s stroke she’ll feel just this once more
With silent eyes open wide her heart it beats
No more. ~ Patrice

Rest in peace dear, sweet Ursa, my little pumpkin
