Had A Dream Today

December 6, 2019

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

Had a dream today
All my problems they just floated away
No need to agonize
No time to feel remorse
Immersed in happiness my course
Set far from sadness
Can’t remember any heart retching tale
Only gladness on this happy trail.

In The Heart

In the heart of my distress
I find an ark of happiness
Ferrys me to a life
In heaven’s image
No heartache, nor strife
In my dreams I seek, I see
This hallowed place I saw
I seek.

Maybe Together

November 22, 2019

In these times of strife, anger, hatred and racism, maybe, maybe this is the answer.

Maybe together
We can master the stage
We’ve been put upon.

Maybe Together
We can find true love
And lasting memories
To call upon.

Maybe Together
We’ll reach out and find
The place, the kind that’ll propel us
To the next human sweetness
Human kind.

Together forever
Maybe together
We’ll find.

Kindness Borrows

November 15, 2019

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

Kindness borrows heaven’s sorrows

Stores them in a safe, grace filled place

Now gone from ladened brow

A smile crosses that once saddened face

Lifting up in hopeful praise

No more to see, feel or fear

Just held with kindness

In heaven’s grace.

The Ultimate Sacrifice

November 11, 2019

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

The ultimate sacrifice,
The ultimate gift.

I thank you
for my freedom,
for my right to live
and choose.

If not for unselfish giving
and bravery beyond
we’d not be here today
and have that right to choose.

I bow my head
and thank you
for your service far beyond
and  show my gratitude
for all those
that have gone.

I Am The One

November 1, 2019

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

I am the one
Who saves my life
The one who guides me
Thru the strife.

I am the one
No need to guess
Still I know, I need not think
I’m alone
And hopelessly guideless.

I am the one
But at my side, in front of me
Has my back, my destiny
A soul so strong, so kind to me
Shows me right and that that’s wrong.

I am the one
Who chooses my each and every way
Thou I know that kind soul
Guides me all through the day.
~ Patrice
