I Know Why I’m Here

October 30, 2019

German Rottie ~ Painting by Patrice

I know why I’m here
Know the world spins and turns
I know sadness and grief
I know great joy and ecstasy.

I know what it means
To be in this world
And part of everything.

I Fear My Heart Will Sink

I fear my heart will sink
Deep beneath all those things
Run my world
Bringing morning sun
And everything.

Will I still be able
To laugh, cry and see
Moon beams streaming
Filled with ecstasy?

Let Me

Let me feel the gratitude
See heaven in all before
Beyond me.

Let me know the life I live
Is not in vain but giving all
To those that need me.

Let me leave this world
Embroiled in nothing more
Than pure love and ecstasy.

I Close My Eyes Just To Feel My Heart

November 11, 2016

Dedicated to those that served and gave all


Patrice Clarkson's Blog

Dedicated to Sue, who has lost her beloved horse, Yorkie.
Our thoughts are with you.

I close my eyes just to feel my heart
Feel the pain
Please make it to depart
Lost to all never more to be
The call I loved and adored from thee.

Feel the sadness reign
Beginning down the path
Of no gladness, ecstasy
Only sadden, weeping pain.

You have gone, lost to me
Remorse is not the word
I need or want to see
Tears once of joy shattered
Left, gone no more to employ
Only rivers long, tragic and so deep
Flowing with overwhelming sadness
Do they weep.

Brought down to my knees
Blows of anguish
Morose disbelief.

Truly thought you’d live forever
Now know is never going to be
Love you ever
Ever please believe
Wanted never
You to leave me never
Ever leave me never please.

Now gone I oh so…

This Day, This Day Is About To Be

This day, this day is about to be
Whether happiness, heartache it will be
Greet it with joy
Greet it with ecstasy.

For the next day, tomorrow
May never be
You see this may be, the last day
The last day you see.

Let Me Sit Under The Maple Tree

Fall Leaves ~ photo by Patrice

Let me sit under the maple tree.

Let my soul live far into eternity
Let me see my heart soar in ecstasy
Let me be one of the ones
Who carry the message to all that need.

Under the maple tree
Let me be me.

Not All I Am About

June 9, 2014

Brittainy ~ Watercolour by Patrice.

My running is not all I am about
But it is what keeps me physically healthy, grounded and at peace
Without it, I will have no focus, no inner peace.

My writing is not all I am about
But from it, I feel whole, in touch with who I am spiritually
I feel a calm, a calm fulfillment.

My art is not all I am about
It’s what I need, what I feel called to do
A yearning, a desire, a challenge, an ecstasy
It is who I am. Who I desire to be.

But not all I am about.

My Heart Sends The Word

My heart sends the word
To those that want to be
Free and deep dark
In the sea of cordial ecstasy.

Anticipation of what can and will be
Sadness, sorrow
Unprecedented ecstasy
Mine to control
With the best there is
That’s what it is.

There Lies The Reason That I Cry

November 16, 2012

There lies the reason that I cry
No, not the one you’d think
But the reason
That makes me cry and cry.

Whenever I smile
Laugh and go ahead
Something in the back
Holds oh so much
Awful, awful dread.

Makes me cry
Makes me shed
Tears not of happiness
Those of monster dread.

Seek and find the reason
That I cry
Seek and find the reason
I feel like I want to die
When I think
Of that dreadful reason
That makes me cry and cry.

Bring it to the open
Expose it to the light
No more hidden
In the darkness of tear light.

Change those tears
And cry’s of sadness
To ones crying
In ecstasy and delight
My life will then not be hidden
In the darkness of tear light.
