Rest Easy and Long

I can’t save my family,

I can’t save the world.

In God’s love rest easy, rest long…

Try as I may,

I can’t hold back the breaking dawn.

Rest easy my child, rest long…

All my fruitless pushing and pleading,

Won’t cause a tidal wave’s receding.

Pointless worry, wasted effort and time,

On unknown reason and rhyme?

In God’s love come rest your head,

Rest easy, rest long…

Knowing you are blessed!

Take away my security, my home,

My strength and my song,

Leave me on the street for dead,

Disregard all I’ve ever done or said,

For I know God’s love carries on.

And only in God’s love,

Do I rest easy and long…

Eternal Love Bears All

No more waiting around for scraps,

Like a hungry bear,

Those days are over…

Eternal Love walks with me.


You are worthy of the joy you seek,

For in every circumstance, 

Love makes a way.

And when the cave of darkness closes in,

And settles over, once again

Time to regroup, readjust, prioritize,

And wait for that silent Light to enter in,

Speaking to your shattered heart…and healing.

Yes, you are worthy!

(That silent Light is God’s love shining for you.)


Eternal Love I’ve waited for you an eternity…

And you’re here now with me.

You’re all I’ve ever wanted, and yet

You’ve been beside me all along…

Bearing your gift of

Eternal Love.

This Space and Time

There is space and time…

For a blessed and peaceful reunion, 

Of hearts and minds.


There is space and time…

For my heart to beat within my chest,

In love, in joy, in grief, in pride. 


There is space and time…

For air to fill my lungs and leave my nostrils,

Tasting life’s breath.


There is space and time…

To accept the flavors of life,

Savoring their richness, beauty and wonders.


There is space and time…

To anticipate sharing love,

Accepting a lover to have and to hold.


There is still space and time…

To live…until I die,

Releasing space/time dust,

And merging back into the re-creation of God’s infinite design.

Infinite Eyes

A New Year…

Just another day in infinity...

Look, deeply look,

In your loved one’s eyes,

Behind them lies infinity…

Look, really look into the night skies,

Beyond such grandness stands infinity…

Look, really look with respect and dignity,

Upon all living things,

For in each one, infinity resides.

Infinity is all around,

Inbedded within and

Above and beyond.

So respect and love,

What you see here and now


Just stop…

And see your world,

With infinite eyes.


-Gilda Patricia

A blessed, safe, happy, healthy New Year to you and yours, in 2018!”

Heaven Will Wait

If life were only heaven,

I imagine things would be

Lovely and complete!

But how then to transform?

What to rise above?

What thing to unlearn?

When and where to create a life,

If no time or space?

With no place to play,

Or twists of fate,

Just peace, love and light…

Could there be a way to graduate?

Thankfully heaven will wait for me.

And when I’m good and done,

The sweetest chance to re-unite, rest…

And re-ignite, life’s inevitably 

Dimming flame.
