I Forgot To Remember

I Forgot To Remember - Photo by Patrice

I forgot to remember
All the things you did to me
I left them in the trash
Now to me.

No more will I cry
No more will I be held
By those things
You did to me.

My life is better now
The sun shines on a spirit
Free of anger
Love is the feeling
I feel here
Inside of me.

A Million Miles Away

May 20, 2020

Sun Flower ~ Photo by Patrice

A million miles away
The sun shines
No matter
The time of day.

My heart must bring
That sun from far
To my day, my walk
My way.

Holding close all
That’s good
All I need to make
It thru today.

From a million miles away
The sun shines
Shines on me
As I’m on my way.

Things Change

Things change, wheels turn
Looking back is not my concern
See the path ahead
Focus on feeling
No trepidation
Remorse nor dread.

Heart holding
Embracing the best
Smile comes
Easing the way
As the sun shines on
Another brilliant day.

Melancholy Feelings, Sorry Heart

December 12, 2017

Horse and Cattle ~ Painting by Patrice

Melancholy feelings
Sorry heart
Trudging through the snow
It’s cold, cold heart.

Icicles dangling, dripping
To sadden, frozen ground
No where to go
Sadness all around.

Then the sun shines
Spreading, singing like a lark
Warming all the world
That frigid, frozen heart.

Wind Blowing

November 26, 2014

Wind Damage ~ Photo by Patrice
Wind blowing
Thru the trees
Everything it sees.

Sparing none
Blowing all night
The morning sun.

Greets the day
All hard work
All blown away.

Nothing left
But clean up
And hold back

The sun will shine
Once again
Life will go on
Even if the wind
She does blow

The Sun Shines Bright

Winter's Lane ~ Photo by Patrice

The sun shines bright
As the wind blows quiet like
The atmosphere breathes a restful breath
Eyes closed in winter rest.

Let me take it in
Feel warmth following the light
To a time when the sun shines
Even in the evening night.

Frost Crunches Beneath My Feet

October 28, 2013

Fall Leaves ~ photo by PatriceFrost crunches beneath my feet
Sodden leaves weep and weep
Fall has come bare bones are cold
The sun shines but no warmth
In this season’s end
I behold.

Beauty Beautiful

June 17, 2013


Morning Sun ~ photo by Patrice

Beauty beautiful is what I see
Spread all about, all about of me
The sun it shines, birds fly and
Mighty, fluffy clouds float by.

Yes, there’s beauty in the sky
The forest and even in my uncut lawn
To get up in the morning and see
Beauty, beauty all around of me
It is oh so beauty
Beauty, beautiful profound.

I Struggle Here Today

September 20, 2012













I struggle here today
In a deep and dark moody way
Anger wells up within
Stepping on a smiling grin
Bringing frustration to the fore
Please go away
Be here never, no more.

Nothing more to say
Try to shift my mood away
From darkness, anger
And all that stuff
To where the sun shines
Clear, oh so bright
And I can be an endearing part
Of whatever hits my aching heart.
