Please Let Me

September 6, 2017

Vince's Border Terrier ~ Watercolour Art by Patrice

Please let me

Be friendly
Not bitter nor condescending
Let me see beauty, dignity
In the world that surrounds me.

Please let me

Give help
To those that need
Strength to ones
Who are weakened.

Please let me

Show vision
To those whose minds
Are imprisoned.

Please let me.

I Thank Those Of You

August 5, 2016

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

I thank those of you
Who treated me
In my ‘Blond’ time
With respect and dignity.

And for those
Who laughed
And ridiculed
I thank you too.

For you have let me see
There are beautiful people
In this world
And ones filled
With misery.

You have a place
Here in this world
But it is nowhere
Near or part of me.

Carefully Watch, Carefully See

July 2, 2015

Winter Snow ~ Photo by Patrice

Carefully watch, carefully see

The world evolve majestically

Don’t stop the trend

Don’t be part of those who halt the flow

Carefully watch, carefully go

See dignity, see might

See love and everything you need

As you go towards the light

Carefully watch, carefully be

The secret to a life you need

Carefully watch, carefully see.

Dear Sweet Friend

January 30, 2015

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

Dear sweet friend
How blessed
I be
To know and love
A friend like thee.

Dear sweet friend
No judgement
Ever do I feel
Only love, respect
And dignity.

Dear sweet friend
I hope to be
The same for you
As you have been
To me.

Merry May The Day Be

August 13, 2013

Merry may the day be
Intertwined with dignity
Cherish every moment
Passing by joyously
With the ticking tock
Of a wall clock
Sorry, sad doesn’t fit inside
This time I merrily pass
Here in the moments
I will relish in a ever
Ever lasting merry day.
~ Patrice

Tender Mercies Follow Me

August 23, 2012

Tender mercies follow me
Down the path
And cross the sea.

Tender mercies set me free
Of all this heartache
Anguish and hostility.

Tender mercies let me be
Happy, pleasant
Full of courtesy.

Tender mercies fill me
Full of grace, calm
And dignity.

Tender mercies now I see
Life and love
Can set me free.

Tender mercies let me be
A better person than
Even I thought I could be!
