Memories ~ Photo by us

Memories come 
They pass 

I ask the question 

Did they really happen 
Was I in a dream  
That wasn’t part
Of my past? 

Memories vague
Vibrant as if they happened
Not long ago 
In a distant, distant past. 

I’ll remember, smile
And be
Reliving memories 
A past that was
Really me.

My Heart Does Break

My Heart Does Break ~ Photo by Patrice

I’m sad 
My heart does break 
The good times, laughter, long walks 
For heavens sake. 

They are all in the past
Memories I won’t shake 
For they keep you near me 
With me 
How my heart does break.

Clouds Boil Black

Clouds Boil Black ~ Photo by Patrice

Clouds boil black across the sky 
hiding goodness, laughter 
beneath an unforgiving land 
the sun can’t shine nor rivers flow 
there is no time for kindness to be bestowed.

Maybe tomorrow 
the day after that 
brightness and laughter 
will replace all this awful crap.

Time Gone Bye

June 16, 2021

I sit here and write 
Of a time gone bye 
Of a time when laughter 
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 
Misery all around. 

Maybe tomorrow 
A time will come 
Full of laughter 
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.

Once Again, Once More

December 14, 2020

Once Again, Once More ~ Photo by Patrice

I feel the heartache
I feel sadness in my soul
Lost and left
I watch
Those trying to climb out
Of deep depression
Once again, once more.

In tomorrow
Will the sun shine again
Will the streets flow with laughter
Will things
Be ever right
Once again, once more?

Why I Think The Things I Do

May 14, 2020

Foxy Painting ~ Watercolour Art by Patrice

I don’t know why
I think the things I do
Or why sometimes
They come true.

I do know my heart
Loves the way
Nature brings beauty
To me, to you.

To live in joy, laughter
Not thinking anything
Or blue.

That’s why
I guess
I think the things
I do.

Sitting Here Thinking

Sitting here thinking
About what my day may be all about
Hoping for no pressure, just fun, laughter
You know what thats about.

Hoping my heart will grow with love
While my sorrows just ebb away
No tremendous thud
Yes, I could learn to love
What that is all about.

Just sitting here thinking
Thinking what my day
Is going to be all about.

Dreams Are Forgotten

July 15, 2016

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

Dreams are forgotten
Never to be told
Never to unfold.

Dreams of splendour
Happiness and fame
All to be seen
Going down the drain.

Sadness, despair
Anguish and heartache
Tear at the soul
Fall to the floor
Never, no more.

Up from the tatters
Mended but bruised
Focused on laughter
Making that dream
Come true.

Watch as dreams
Of splendour and happiness
Unfold to be true
This too can be you.

Life’s Not Easy

November 6, 2014

Old Car ~ Photo by Patrice

Life’s not easy but what I’ve got
Even if I sacrifice, pay my dues
Know it doesn’t mean
I get to cruise.

If the hard work never stops
Does it mean I’ll not
Feel fun and laughter, give it up
Be satisfied with my lot?

Absolutely, absolutely not.
