Live Til You Die

June 20, 2022
Live Til You Die ~ Illustration by Patrice

Don’t live your life 
in a way 
you know how you’ll die. 

Live a life worth living 
til that time, that time
you really do die. 

Let joy, happiness prevail
all trials, heartache pale with moments
your heart bursts in joyous cries
your eyes run tears of gratitude
your ears hear angels trumpet

Stories of your magnificent life.
the life, that life
you’re going to live. 

Till you die.

Each Morning

March 9, 2022
Last used March 9/22

Each morning
I create 

Each morning
I make her come alive 

Each night she sleeps
does not die

Each day 
I appreciate she lives 
she is alive.

All will come to an end
All the steel girders will bend
Every season will thrive and die
The answers you sought will make you cry
The happiness foretold you won’t deny
All will be all you have

I forgot
What day this was
I forget if a saddened sun shone
I forget what I had for lunch.

I didn’t forget the thousands that did die
I didn’t forget those that did get out alive
I haven’t forgot you helped those survive.

I can not forget the clouds of smoke
Rising ash, people stunned, sirens wailing
Unholy hell reigning
It seemed to last I have not forgot.

I can not forget
A silence as planes flew into concrete
Smashing trust, crushing hopes
This I won’t and have not forgot.

To Cry Is Human

October 7, 2016

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

To cry is human.
It shows you care.

To laugh is human.
It shows you have joy.

To anger is human.
It shows you feel.

To remember is human.
It shows you have been.

To die is human.
It shows you have lived.

Tell Me When, Tell Me Why

Tell me when, tell me why
Please, before I die.

Don’t want to cry, don’t want to die
Please tell me when, please tell me why.

Let Me Honour You

November 11, 2014

Veteran's Poppy

Let me honour you
For your sacrifice, devotion and courage
Not afraid to die.

Let me honour you
For fighting for peace
And were willing to die.

Let me honour you
For the love of country
You battled, you died.

Let me honour you
Ones I loved
Who fought, who died.

Let me honour you
Fallen soldier
The brave who have died.

Did You Forsake Me?

Did you forsake me, leave me to die?
Will my heart break, will I know why?
Power and strength are not given to cry
But for me the world is misery
Forsaken, cloudy and die.

I Wonder What Would Happen

March 21, 2014

Perplexed Deer ~ photo by Patrice


I wonder what would happen
If my heart was not whole
But fractured in many pieces
Full of anguish holes.

Would I cry?
I wonder would I die?
Would I be no more?
Can’t help but wonder
Some more.

Or would I mend that heartache
Filling the anguish with love instead
That’s what I would do
I don’t need to wonder or dread.

Now I do wonder
What would become of you?
Would you believe
And come down this happy road
Accompanying me?
