My Heart Aches

September 18, 2015

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

My heart aches
For the girl I use to be
Finding it hard accepting
This woman I am to be.

I was innocent then
Accepting and carefree.
What happened
To that girl?

Where could she be?
Life took a toll
Leaving her as you see.

Must accept this woman
Must be pleased
And certainly see
a beautiful person too
Just not as carefree.

Happy yes, more so now
Than ever could be.
So love this woman
Because she is me.

Three Years Ago Tomorrow

February 27, 2015

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

MontyThree years ago tomorrow,
Monty died today.
I Feel the sadness and the pain
Just like it was yesterday.

He stayed with us a little longer
Not for himself, but to help make us stronger,
To be able to accept that final day.
Three years ago tomorrow,
When Monty died today.

To cherish and remember
All that was good and dear.
About Monty,
who three years ago tomorrow
Died today.

The last day of February,
The 29th to be exact
Which tomorrow isn’t there
So, three years ago tomorrow,
Monty died today.

You See The Stars

February 4, 2015

You see the stars and the sky
You find the words to question why.

No one speaks or utters just one word
Hearts are full and not with verbs.

What has happened?
No answer why.

Accept the words, move on
See the stars, see the sky.

Battle As If It Is Your Last

August 16, 2013

Flashing, Crashing, Pouring Down Storm ~ photo by Patrice

Battle as if it is your last
Incoming, incoming
Take no prisoners
Make sure you are the last
Standing
Never show that you are alone
Never show you care.

Battle hard
Use every weapon that you see
Leave nothing to chance
Or destiny.

Battle
Battle as if it is your last gasp
Never ever expect help to arrive
For you are the only one
Alive in your world
You must
You must survive.

Then you hear
A haunting call calming wind
And your breath is taken in
As you know
Someone great Is at the door
Someone you’ve never seen before.

Someone kind has come
To have your back
You can lay down
The weapons used to destruct
You can kneel and be kind
Knowing that you’re no longer
Or ever been
Alone.

Love is here embracing you
Treating life gently
With love coming from all around
Surrounding
Making you grow
Becoming the one you wanted
Always to know.

Battle not
Accept the love
You are not lost but found
Look all around.

My Heart Is Sad

January 2, 2012

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

 

My heart is sad and maybe a little mad
Not at the world but my attitude.
Who made me think I could chose
The way to travel thru this universe?

Not alone
Nor will I ever be
Able to master all this
I see before of me.

Be me humble and resolute
I will accomplish this I wish to
With a power greater
Than all of me.

This my heart must accept
For it will race with joy
As I master this
That has been brought
Before of me.

Thank you God
And the Lord above
Without your help
There would be no love.

Shock, Horror, Not Understanding

September 5, 2011

Shock, horror, not understanding, disbelief, could not be
No, this did not happen, happening
Why?
Tell me why
Not right, anger, frustration, denial
Fury, acceptance, sadness, deep anguish, lost, emptiness
Anger, depression, guilt
Help me understand why
Accept and forgive.
