Let Me Write Something Smart And Clever

November 5, 2018

Let me write
Something smart and clever
Telling the world
Secrets they didn’t know.

Pour my thoughts out
Convey all the things
I understand
And now know.

Hope they show
Compassion, loving kindness
And a knowledge given me
That til then I didn’t know.

Let Me Lift Up My Soul

August 7, 2018

Let me lift up my soul
My heart, my eyes
To the bright cerulean sky
Let no heart beat
Without a steady beat
No eye cry for a unbeknown
Love that’s died.

Let my feet walk, run
In rhythm with the flowing sun
Shade my head
With kindness, courtesy
Feel no dread
As my arms embrace
The living grace that surrounds
All living.

Seeking not
A world of anguish
But living
Living without knowing
Sadness, pity
There I’ll live
With the upmost dignity.

Wondering Why Or Did I See

Wondering why or did I see
How the heart mends
Without any seams.

Tragedy, chaos and most likely strife
Rip holes in my being
Then along comes kindness
Dipped in strength
Changing everything.

A smile, a laugh, a gentle caress
Hold me together
Thru anything.

I’m not wondering
I know, I see
With love my heart mends
Without any seams.

I’m Still Here

December 7, 2016

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.

I’ve Always Had That Gentle Soul

August 19, 2016

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

I’ve always had that Gentle Soul
Guiding me thru tough
Tumultuous times
At my side they’d be
When no one else did care.

That Gentle Soul would reach down
Pick me up, quietly set me
On the proper path
Never asked, always there
To help guide me anywhere.

That Gentle Soul has saved my life
Guided me thru all kinds of strife
I owe so much, I must give back
Kindness to those on their own path.

That Gentle Soul has guided me
Now I must do the same for thee.

Sadness

April 18, 2016

Ice Storm Aftermath ~ Photo by Patrice

Sadness is
A part of life along with heartache, chaos
Unnecessary strife
No amount of humour will make them go away
They stay
Belonging to those that breathe sadness in their day.

Sadness though
Can too, live in a heart full of love
Along with kindness, gentle touch
And
Unconditional love.

Kindness, Tenderness

March 15, 2016

Rotti Pup and Fawn ~ Watercolour Illustration by Patrice

Kindness, tenderness
All of the day
Hold it close
Don’t let it slip away.

Your heart will thank you
Your soul will say

Kindness, tenderness
All of the day
Hold it close
Don’t let it slip away.
