When Your Heart Is Sore

When your heart is sore
Your tears won’t dry
Remember
You’re not alone
We hear your cries.

Remember too
All who we’ve said goodbye
Are with us still
Only running now
Where angels fly.

Today Is A Sad Day For Me

March 28, 2018

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

Today is a sad day for me
Today was the day I knew in my heart
My mom was dying.

Nothing, nothing I could do
Or say would stop it
This I knew in my heart
But not my head.

Anguish, fear, frightened
Looking for the answer
That would save her
Keep her here with me
Sadly, not to be.

Not once did I think
That maybe she had had enough
And wished to go
Oh no.

When I look back on this day
I see it was all about me
My feelings, my hurt
My need to have her here with me.

I said Goodbye that day
While deep inside, my heart knew
My head refused
Believing we’d have more, more happy days.

That inner voice, my heart
It knew
It knows the future and has lived the past.

She passed
She passed the next day
My mom, she…

Sweet Water Greets

April 29, 2015

Sweet water greets those flying from the south
A long time since said goodbye
Now spring beckons them to our house
Heavy, sweet ruffled feathers
Shook out to contain some heat
Refilled from drinking that that’s sweet.

Tiny and big spring flowers bloom
Holding up their coloured petals
To the sun and to the moon
Sweet nectar deep inside
Lavish feast for who knows where it resides
Hovering there in spring.

Welcome back my little summer friends
Who harrow spring and winter’s end
Let summer too be about to begin
Trust your journey was a easy ride
On currents blowing up
On south’s humid tide.

We’ll share the warm summer’s breeze
You’ll drink sweet water
Til leaves begin to fall
Then on currents you’ll fly away
Drinking sweet water on your way
Back to a warm, south southern day.

My Teck

May 16, 2012

No hope, no hope
So sad. So very, very sad
For a wonderful dog he is
So wish I could save and
Make him whole and healthy
But not to be
Not to be.

Goodbye my guy,
My friend,
My Mister Man you be
I love you still, I always will
Move on through Heaven’s door
We’ll see in days to come
A better life
I love you Teck
Be free of  pain
No pain for thee.

Goodbye my guy
The wonder dog you be
My heart breaks
Hemorrhaging such heartache
In what I wish wouldn’t be.

 

 

Adieu my friend
We’ll meet again
May safe you be
On this your long
Last journey.
~ Patrice
