When You See The Greatness

August 25, 2016

Courageous Rottie ~ Watercolour by Patrice

When you see the greatness
The majesty
You’ll also see the power
And the glory.

No stone unturned
No path untread
No heart lying
Waiting in an empty, lonely bed.

All will be together
All will be suffice
To make this world better
To give this world life.

When I Was Lost

When I was lost, nowhere to go
She was there
This I know.

Holding still
Sitting quietly next to me
Not on a chair
But a presence
I could feel, I could not see.

Quietly she spoke
Her hand reaching out
Caressing my spirit, my soul
This being called

She told of things
That would be
She told me I would succeed
She told me, she told me

Her voice so calm
Her touch so light
Her presence it could light
The darkest night.

An angel perhaps
A passing soul, who knows
But by my side
She lived, she stayed
She goes.

Take The Bad

Harvey ~ Watercolour by Patrice

Take the bad
Let it rest
Somewhere else
That is best.

Don’t dwell on it
Don’t let it control
Your head, your heart
Your very soul.

We Have No Concerns

We have no concerns
That bother us, we take them in
Our stride.

Neither can hardships concern us
If we smile and know the thing is
We’re alive.

I’ve Always Had That Gentle Soul

August 19, 2016

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

I’ve always had that Gentle Soul
Guiding me thru tough
Tumultuous times
At my side they’d be
When no one else did care.

That Gentle Soul would reach down
Pick me up, quietly set me
On the proper path
Never asked, always there
To help guide me anywhere.

That Gentle Soul has saved my life
Guided me thru all kinds of strife
I owe so much, I must give back
Kindness to those on their own path.

That Gentle Soul has guided me
Now I must do the same for thee.

Knowing When

Knowing when to go
When to stop
This is the secret to a life
Not filled with wrought.

Danger, Danger

Old House Window ~ Photo by Patrice









Danger, danger
Lurking in the dark
Standing there
Waiting, watching for the time
When the mind
Isn’t paying attention
Isn’t expecting anything
Like this awful crime
Danger, danger
Make it so it isn’t mine.
~ Patrice
