Time Gone Bye

June 16, 2021

I sit here and write 
Of a time gone bye 
Of a time when laughter 
Reached
Hit the sky. 

When smiles
Were all you needed 
To be 
To be happy and carefree. 

But that time has passed 
That time has gone 
The world is dark 
Sorrow 
Misery all around. 

Maybe tomorrow 
A time will come 
Full of laughter 
Happiness 
All good things to come. 

I will live there 
I will survive 
I will taste good times 
They’ll be mine once again 
Soon and in
The sweet bye and bye.

My Father Passed Away

April 28, 2021
Last used April 28/21

My father passed away 
Passed away many years ago 
On this day. 

Memories are all I have 
Thoughts of yesterday 
Whether happiness, laughter 
Or crying in a most sadden way. 

My father was my saviour 
A man of strength 
I loved everyday. 

He had troubles
Complications like we all have 
As we travel thru our lives 
On our way. 

All this he overcame 
Becoming a beacon of light 
On my darkest days.

I Must

October 13, 2020

I Must ~ Art by Patrice

I must
reach for the best

I must
know that tenderness
will bring joy and happiness

I must
make my world turn
with kindness, not hate

I must
I must seek
search, participate.

You Have The Answer

You have the answer ~ Photo by Patrice

You have the answer
You have the way
To bring joy and happiness
Into this world
Making a better place
Now and everyday.

No words of commitment
No promises uttered
In any way
Just moving forward
Taking each and every step
Accomplishing a better day.

I Am Feeling Down

September 29, 2020

I Am Feeling Down ~ Photo by Patrice

I am feeling down and all alone
Feel my heart beat a lonesome tone
Crying, standing in the wake
Of not where I want to be.

Hoping the mists of sadness
Will disappear, leaving behind
A world bright and clear
Full of anticipation, happiness
Not this awful, nagging fear and sadness.

Happiness

August 18, 2020

Happiness ~ Photo by Patrice

You haven’t seen
the last of heartbreak or the door
to
Happiness

Sadness, pain frolic on the path
tripping all attempts at prosperity
with
Happiness

They stand there laughing hard
mocking attempts at joy
and
Happiness

Take a breath, a deep sigh
all this will pass and once again
you’ll bask in the pleasures
of
Exquisite Happiness.

In The Heart

In the heart of my distress
I find an ark of happiness
Ferrys me to a life
In heaven’s image
No heartache, nor strife
In my dreams I seek, I see
This hallowed place I saw
I seek.

My Fortune Is In My Hands

October 15, 2019

My Dedicated Running Partner - Photo by Patrice

My Fortune I suppose
Is in my hands
The coming and going
Of goodness, happiness
Is in my command.

No soaked coat
Laden with anger
Can cover me
Or make my way
A forsaken land.

I will, I can
See my fortune ahead
Waiting
Waiting to take my hand.

Strive For Happiness

June 21, 2019

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

Strive for happiness
Creating love
Narrow the corridor
That harbours anger
Let it sink deep into murky mud.

Never saw it coming
Never heard the cry
Maybe in the beginning
I didn’t understand
The reason why.

Now that is over and it seems
The clouds have begun to dry
I’ll take my happiness
And make love
The reason why.
~ Patrice
