The Idea Came

December 5, 2016

The idea came
Staying maybe for a day
Not a word was said
Just everything conveyed
On a thread of thought
Streaming thru my head
Ending in my heart.

No word was spoken
No lips moved
Instead an idea alone
Placed its thoughts
Quietly in my mind
In my head
And forever in my heart.

When I Think All Is Lost

December 2, 2016

When I think all is lost
You come and hold me.

You give me strength
When I feel so weak
You give me hope
A chance to speak
The words that heal me.

My heart’s not broken
It mends, it sees me
Go ahead with life
With you beside me.

What Has Happened

What has happened
To the day, the month
And the year?

It has been here
Now gone on its way
Becoming nothing more
Than yesterday.

Seeking to see tomorrow
I lost sight of today
Where I had hoped to live

Realizing it only
When I looked back
To see yesterday passing
From tomorrow right on by
Thru me today.

When I Hear The Bell

When I hear the bell
My heart stands
Stands still.

My breath gasps
When I hear the bell.

No sounds sing
No voice cries
Words worth keeping.

Only nothing

The Moment

Enjoying the moment
Enjoying the scene
All its well
And in some instances

Blessed be this moment
This moment I’m in
Only me in this moment
And never to occur

Where Will It End

Where will it end? Where did it begin?

Answer not there
Nor has it been
Obvious to us watching
Listening in.

The Parcel Is Wrapped And Ready To Go

November 25, 2016

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

The parcel is wrapped and ready to go
To someone deserving this I know
But please let them see
Love wrapped happily and ready to go
To someone who’ll cherish it
And then let it go.

Don’t worry if it’s proper
Don’t worry if it’s right
Just send it off wrapped
Full of love
Tied lovingly tight.

Don’t wait for an answer
Nor expect one soon
Your love is the answer
Yours or someone who opens the parcel
All wrapped and ready to go
On to the world there to bestow
True love forever
Wherever it goes.

So just wrap a parcel
Fill it with love
Give it to someone
In need of a hug.
~ Patrice
