You Heard Me Call

June 24, 2021
You Heard Me Call - Photo by Patrice

You heard me call 
I didn’t say words needed 
Not yesterday.

All was lonely, all was not right 
You heard me call but turned away. 

Words stung, they torn away 
A facade built up way before today. 

You heard me call and laughed away
The sights envisioned for tomorrow
Created just today. 

I have stopped, I call no more
For words must be by someone else 
It’s not my work, not anymore.

Yesterday

Teck, in Remembrance

When I think
Of all the things
That have disappeared
Gone away
Happened yesterday
My heart joins forces
With my soul
To help me understand
Why it all had to go away

Yesterday.

Quietly

Quietly I lay 
waiting for the sky 
to take away 
all the hurt, pain 
I experienced 
yesterday 

Quietly, quietly I lay.

Breach of the Capital Building ~ Photo by Jason Andrew

When it happened
What did you say
How did you rationalize
All the people breaching
The Capital building
Yesterday?

Nothing, no one
Can make it seem right
in
Today
Tomorrow
or
Yesterday.

Beginning a new year
A new day
Leaving all that’s bad
In yesterday.

Bringing with me
Only love and joy
Created there
In my yesterday.

Let Me Be, Let Me See

October 9, 2019

Let me be, let me see

All the magic unfolding

Here in front of me

Let no one say

I didn’t laugh or cry

In the face of yesterday

Maybe then

I’ll be happy

In spite of all I think

I’ll never be

Today.

So Much To Say

September 16, 2019

So much to say
So little paper to write it
All out
What so many people are talking
Laughing, talking about.

Suffice to say
When I find that scrap of paper
Filed somewhere
Yesterday
I’ll laugh, I’ll cry.

Because even then
I know there’s been
So much to say
So little paper to write it
All out.

Farther Away Yesterday

February 20, 2019

The farther I go
The farther away
I get from
What has happened
Yesterday.

Seeking no remorse
Nothing to say
All is in the past
That I did
Yesterday.

Maybe tomorrow
When I’m farther away
Maybe then
I’ll understand the past
All that happened
Yesterday.

I Live In The Past

February 12, 2019

Model T on the hill ~ Photo by Patrice

I live in the past
I see those days
I hear that heartbeat
Unable to make
Those old thoughts
Go away.

But

Not all sadness I feel
For joy and gladness
Support me today
I know I had, had it all
In the life I lived
Yesterday.

Have You Seen Optimistic?

December 7, 2018

Jackal ~ Illustration by Patrice for Holt, Rinehart and Winston's reader, 'Flights Near And Far'

Have you seen optimistic?
Where, oh where could she be?
At one time she was here
Right beside of me.

She kept me company
Laughed and made me see
The happy, caring way
Just what I need.

But yesterday
She left, she left me
Have you seen optimistic?
If you do, please tell me.
