When I Think Of What I’ve Done

November 28, 2018

When I think of what I’ve done
I wonder how this could be?

I’m a mortal, no one special
But still I see this beauty
Coming from within of me.

Then I realized
That God has given me
All that I am
All that I can be.

He does this with us all
The sunset, the whispering tree
Even that nasty insect
Which bit me on my knee.

God is within us all
And I’m glorified to know
He’s forever within of me.

Sometimes I Let It Go

Sometimes I let it go
Sometimes I don’t give it a second thought.

Sometimes I wonder what happened?
What changed your mind and erased your loving heart?

Once I was all you knew
No one else you gave a second thought.

Now indifference clouds the view
Sarcasm is the voice heard a lot
No more gentle caress, no more loving thoughts.

Didn’t happen over night
It seeped in thru empty, shallow thoughts
Taking a awful tole on our gentle, loving hearts.

Sometime turn around look back down your path
See me standing all alone, looking back.

Loving as much as I did then
In the gentle, loving days
Before the empty, shallow thoughts.

When I Think Of Things

When I think of things that’ve passed
I wonder
Where they came to live
In what heart do they survive
And will they be known
In the future’s past?

Wondering Why

August 2, 2016

Wondering why clouds can float
In the sky
I wonder, wonder why.

Wondering why heaven doesn’t fall
From the blue, blue sky
I wonder, wonder why.

Wondering why hearts open up
And break in two
I wonder, wonder why.

Wondering why when I see you
Clouds float heaven all around
And my heart opens up with love
Enveloping everything beneath the sky
I wonder, wonder why.

Why Are We Here?

January 8, 2016

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

Why are we here? Where did we come from? Where will we go?
Have we been here before?
All questions that have been asked for a extremely long time.

Does my dog, my cat or horse ask the same questions? Does the deer wandering thru the woods think of these things? Does the robin sitting on her nest of eggs?

I wonder…

I Wonder What Would Happen

March 21, 2014

Perplexed Deer ~ photo by Patrice


I wonder what would happen
If my heart was not whole
But fractured in many pieces
Full of anguish holes.

Would I cry?
I wonder would I die?
Would I be no more?
Can’t help but wonder
Some more.

Or would I mend that heartache
Filling the anguish with love instead
That’s what I would do
I don’t need to wonder or dread.

Now I do wonder
What would become of you?
Would you believe
And come down this happy road
Accompanying me?
