Begging For The Answer

November 26, 2019

Face Study ~ Illustration by Patrice

Begging for the answer
Looking for the right
To make my life a difference
Far, far into the brightest day
The darkest night.

No one will answer
Justify or let it go
Me alone will climb
The altar’s steps
Me alone will be the one
To know.

Don’t Be Bitter Or Angry

June 22, 2018

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

Don’t be bitter or angry
Just be happy and gay.

Don’t let them get you down
With their toxic chatter
Even in the darkest night
There always will be a guiding light.

Dance a light step down the pathway
Smile, laugh hysterically with delight
Being happy and gay
If only tonight.

When I Was Lost

August 24, 2016

Costa Rican Sunrise ~ Photo by Patrice

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
Me.

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

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.

Now

March 21, 2016

Great Danes from Purina's Hall of Fame ~ Watercolour by Patrice

Wandering now
Where I’ve never been

Seeking now
Things I’ve won’t begin

Leaving now
Thoughts I shouldn’t have held so tight

Gone now
From the darkest night

Flowing now
On a path not so straight

Holding now
Promise as I go to the light.

Dear Lord Let Me Be

November 16, 2015

Black Coral ~ Photo by Brent

Dear Lord let me be strong
And full of dignity
Let me see your guiding light
Bright
Even in the darkest night
Dear Lord let me be.

Let me feel your guiding hands
Pull me in the way you command
Dear Lord let me be
A child of your God in your image
Strong and free
Dear Lord let me be.

My Delicate Deception

December 9, 2011

In my delicate deception
Brows furrow, cast aside
All that is positive in my life.
Without a glance at what could be
Down it goes into the darkest night
As my delicate deception cries
Cries for those left with not a right.
A right to live, a right to be
My delicate deception
I must make right for thee.
~ Patrice
