Tenderness, Loving And Caring

March 26, 2015

Costa Rican Tales

Tenderness, loving and caring
Caressing my heart, my life
Tender touch holding me
In warmth
This very night.

Smiling, laughing
Bringing cheer and delight
May you feel love like this
May it hold you safe and secure
All thru your life

Yeah, Yeah

March 25, 2015

Yeah, yeah
Is what I say
To everything today.

Sordid, angry, no patience, no way
Yeah, yeah I’ll be better tomorrow
Or maybe the next day.

See no joy, no harm in any way
Just down
It’s a yeah, yeah kind of day.

Blessed I guess, cause I can have
A Yeah, yeah day and no trouble
Consequences come my way.

Must find goodness, find a way
To see happiness
In a yeah, yeah type of day.

Days Move Forward

Days move forward
Gone one by one
Packed with something
But neither overrun
With sadness, happiness
Or blissful dreams
Days move forward
Inspite of all these things.

What you see
May be what you dreamed
Or what you saw
In an unhealthy scene
Don’t deny that it has been
For you can only move pass
When you know it’s been
As days move forward
In the scheme of things.

You Decide

You decide
whether the storm is cold
Or summery hot
You decide.

The future your’s to take
The path to the left
Or go to the right
You decide.

See blissful rain
Or shattering shame
Your decision
You decide.

Your heart won’t know
Til your ears do cry
And your eyes see what
You decide.

Dawning A New Day

March 20, 2015

Originally posted on Patrice Clarkson's Blog:

Deadly night giving way
To joy of a dawning new day
Darkness swept away.

Bright, clear light
Soothing frightened spirits
Embracing tattered souls.

Raising up their kind hearts
Holding til they alone can do
Tragic loss gaining something new.

Be kind, be felt
For you in turn
Shall do.

I Thought

I thought of that
And now don’t know why.

I thought of this
And now I feel a need to cry.

I thought of things
And still didn’t feel a thing.

I thought so
And now I know I didn’t know

Watching The World

March 18, 2015

Moving Pass ~ Photo by Patrice

Watching the world in front of me
Busy, gracefully happy
It is what it is and can be.

Part of my dream, my fantasy
Not a word is said, no thunder clap
Only conveyed heartfelt courtesy.

With this and that sitting here quietly
Smiling joyfully
Watching the world unfold in front of me.
