Why I Cry

You know why I cry
You know, you know

Life would be easy
Life would be fine
If only I’d forget
Those memories that bind.

For no crying will change
What has happened
Nor make it
Not come to past.

If I lived in the present
Not thinking of the past
Never crying for
What happens in the future.

Let it come
Let it past
Now is my time
Now I must make it last.

Looking Back At Last, At Last

April 1, 2020

Looking back
You just gotta laugh
Things you thought tragic
Made life better
Later on
At last, at last.

Giving choices
Crossing bridges
Making decisions
That made you live
Live and love
At last, at last.

Looking back now
You smile
You know
You just gotta laugh
At last, at last.

You Know

You know, I haven’t seen
The beauty, splendour
You talked about, you’ve seen.

Mine has been
A narrow kaleidoscope
Of all the things
Near and close to me.

And you know
You know, that’s enough
Enough for me.

Morning Doves And Evening Grosbeaks

Morning doves and evening grosbeaks
Ever wonder why the names they got
What they seek?

And how come blue jays cry?

While chickadees speak
Crows caw?

Truth is, that too
We don’t know why.

Creatures Large And Small

April 3, 2018

Creatures large and small
Stand at the entrance leading you in
Making troubles seem not at all.

No words are spoken
No hand is touched
No promise made.

Still you know your world is right
You lived, you loved
And had so much.

You Know

October 12, 2016

You know the answer
You know what’s sane
You know no one can make
Your life full of pain
The only one who can
Is living there in you
And you must make sure
No one lets it happen
No one
Not even you.
~ Patrice
