I Know I’ve Been Lost

April 5, 2022
I Know I've Been Lost ~ Watercolour Painting by Patrice

I know
I’ve been lost 
in the wilderness
of
low self esteem 

Climbing out 
has been hard 
rocks, crevasses 
unholy shards
pierce my skin, my life
my thoughts 

Still I climb 
I push, pull and shove 
to
a glorious world 
full of
grace, courage 
and
self-love.

I’ve Seen Your Sweet Face

January 31, 2022
W.R.A.C. 2002 Fall Trial - High Scoring VPG II ~ Me and my Great Faldo

I’ve seen your sweet face 
Smiling
Full of grace. 

All
I can do 
Is
Try to be as great 
As great as you.

I’m Still Here

December 4, 2020

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

My Family ~ unknown photographer

I may no longer
Be firmly in your presence
I may be a memory now
Only a thought
A time in your life.

But I’m still here
In that thought
or a glint in your eye
A soft word spoken
To show, to guide.

No longer can I caress
With a hand you can see
But I’m here
Feel my breath as the breeze
Blows gently
That’s me.

Hear my heart
Now silent beat
When you see
A beautiful flower
A tree bend in the wind
Hear me.

No sad words need to be said
Over top of the berth
I now call my bed
For I have gone
To a place full of grace.

Kindness, radiant
Loving light fill this world
I’m now in
Gentle ones share, care
They hold me in.

Please don’t despair
Because I’m no longer there
In a form you’ve known
For I’m here
I’m still here.

You Are Full Of Majesty

April 26, 2016

Sharon's Kitty ~ Painting by Patrice

You are full of majesty
Fulfilling all your destiny
Taking nothing for granted
Softly treading
On this world’s planet
A sweet smile across your face
Nothing of you is not
Full of graceful grace
Majesty is seen
Even in your careful pace.

In The Near Future

May 15, 2015

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

In the near future and the past
Everything was aghast.
Not so liked but tolerated
Sad to say, that was my past.

I am aghast I let it past
Say no more and move along
My life is worth more
Than a sad, sad song.

Vince's Border terrier ~ Watercolour Art by PatriceSee you there
In that happy place
Full of joy, full of grace.
You will bow and I will chase
All the butterflies that giggle
And face the troubles
I’m trying to erase.

Maybe now it does not exist
Because I showed them
I will resist.

Be ye happy.
Be ye pleased because together
We brought them to their knees.
Here, in the near future
And most likely in the past
With absolute ease.

My Friend John

January 15, 2014

John and Carol

My friend John
His life on earth is no more.

But I remember like just yesterday
All the things he did for me
Not looking for any repay.

Along with his wife Carol
Gave me strength
When I felt so hollow.

When I couldn’t stand
They held me up.

When I couldn’t walk
They carried me through.

When I couldn’t smile
They made me see
The joy
The treasure life can be.

When my heart was cracked
And wouldn’t mend
They sealed the breaks
With love again.

And then
When out of a house
No where to live
They gave me shelter
A home for me
My dogs and cats to live.

When I needed a car
To take me on my travels
John made the deal
By pretending
To be my father.

No returns
Did either ever request
Just loving
Sharing and respect.

Never got to say
How much it meant til today
Now I do request
That you Carol, know
I will be forever in your debt.

John please save a place
At that table
Where you sit with your friends
Smiling happily, full of grace.

My lovely friends
I’ll never forget
The most wondrous man I ever met.
~ Patrice

My sincerest condolences to all that called John
Loving husband, father, brother and dearest friend.
