Can I Fix It?

Can I fix it?
Will I be the one
That’s the hero
In a situation
That should not be?

Crushed and miserable
Full of doubt
Must move forward
Cast it out.

Smile with gratitude
Mean it
See it radiate
All about.

My strength and smile
Will cast misery out.
Can I fix it?
I have no doubt.

May My Soul Find The Secrets

May my soul find the secrets
Hidden deep in my heart
May the pleasure never
Ever, ever depart.

May I find justice
For the things unfairly done
And may the sun shine
On all those I love
Each and everyone.

May I find the strength
To stand up straight
And not waiver
In the thoughts
That can make me see
Greatness in all of thee.

May my soul believe
And see
All that is wondrous
In this secret place
Called me.

There Was A Time When We Were Old

There was a time when we were old
We’d laugh and cry as life did unfold
No remorse for things gone by
Only clamour for a sweet
Haunting lullaby.

Ancient wrinkles on a child’s face
Laughing, crying filled with grace
No honour lost, no rushing pace
No deadline met, only loving grace
Masking love on a loving face.

In a time gone by we may have met
Laughed and cried, no heartache wept
What a wondrous thing
When we were young and therefore old
In a time when we spun together
Treasures made of gold.

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…

Gentle Souls

Gentle souls gently resting
Smiling faces greeting burdened souls
Open hearts embracing those that need
Gently raising gentle souls.
