Strangely Enough

Strangely enough
All is okay
All is moving forward
A deep breath in, deep sigh
Life is good
We have lasted
Strangely enough

I can’t be scorned, belittled or debased
I am alive, I have survived
I know, know what I need to do.

My Beating Heart

March 6, 2019

Wood Smiles and Sad ~ Photo by Patrice

My heart is heavy
She feels so old
So many stories
How many more
To be told?

She ticks and beats
She has survived
She seen joys
She has cried.

Blood fills
Pulses to
My mind, hands, feet
And back thru.

How many more thumps
Does she have
Not mine to know
Just glad I have her
I have
My beating heart.

I Drink My Coffee

April 19, 2013

I drink my coffee
I sip my tea
I struggle in the morning
Just to be me.

Then in the afternoon
It all becomes clear
Salvation from questions
I have no answers to
No answers for
Those I hold dear.

As night settles in
And my heart quietly rests
I see I’ve been tested
And survived with the rest.
