I Should Not Believe

December 8, 2021
I Should Not Believe ~ Cartoon by Patrice

I know
I should not believe 
That all is well 
That’s just make believe 

Time has come
To stand still 
Feel the earth move 
See reality 

Ugly, beauty 
All of it understood 
Accepting, unconditionally 

Still believing 
In the grace of God 
I will believe.

Close By And Near To Me

Close By And Near To Me ~ Watercolour Illustration by Patrice

Close by and near to me 
The warmth of your body 
Comforts, protects me 
Gives me time 
To see
The answer to all the questions 
Filling me.

Then my world
Will be filled with love

Riley Passed Away Yesterday

 Riley Passed Away Yesterday ~ Photo by Patrice

Riley passed away
his beating heart stopped
his breath ceased to be
only memories
memories that is all we have
you see.

A gentle, kind, wondrous guy
knowing, knowledgeable
a smile on his face
devoted beyond belief
this was Riley
who now has been.

He passed away, passed away
rest in peace sweet Riley
you were loved and loved
~ Patrice  

~ My deepest condolences to his family and all that loved him ~

Tremendous Help You Are To Me

Tremendous help you are to me
Tremendous, unconditionally
What I say, Where I go
You are there, backing me.

When the day begins, night ends
There in front of me
At my side, my back protecting
You are a tremendous help

Never Before Did I

Never before did I
Feel the work of the Lord
Residing in everything.

Never before did I
Find a way to heal
The hurt felt when I was left
In a terrible bind.

Never before did I
See the magic a heart can do
To mend with love
Given unconditionally.

Never before did I
Be in the realm
Of a beautiful soul
Such as thee.
~ Patrice
