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.

Come Together

November 2, 2020

 Come Together ~ Painting by Patrice

Come together
feel the pain
let it loose
to gather love
from all surrounding
loving you.

A walk alone
is never needed
hold the hand of those
that seek it
with gentle generosity
and kindness.

Together
you’ll go
to heaven before
around
and beneath us.

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.

Memories Last

January 29, 2020

Sunning Spike ~ Watercolour by Patrice

Memories last
to give us space to remember
those gone from this place.

Holding close, holding long
remembering all the snuggles, caresses
Thru the night so long.

Heartache cries missing those loved
now my heart’s alone
a empty place.

I can’t, won’t forget
your loving soul’s a memory
all that I have left.

Kindness Borrows

November 15, 2019

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

Kindness borrows heaven’s sorrows

Stores them in a safe, grace filled place

Now gone from ladened brow

A smile crosses that once saddened face

Lifting up in hopeful praise

No more to see, feel or fear

Just held with kindness

In heaven’s grace.

Help me hear the voices say
Wondrous words
Spoke in love and kindness
Now and everyday.

Let Me Write Something Smart And Clever

November 5, 2018

Winter Orchid ~ Photo by Patrice

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

Old Car ~ Photo by Patrice

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

June 15, 2018

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

Sun Flower ~ Photo by Patrice

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.
