Have I Been Helpful

December 31, 2020

 Have I Been Helpful ~ Photo by Patrice

Have I been helpful, have I’ve been the best?

Looking back upon the year
What would I change, what would I let rest?

No time to dwell, no time for remorse

For I must move forward, look ahead
To the year yet to unfold
And
Anticipate it to be full of wonders
Yet to be told.

I Need To Know

May 25, 2020
Wicka ~ Watercolour by Patrice

I can’t keep you happy
I can’t let you go
No one can say the things
I need to know.

Bow my head in anguish
Raise it in joy
Move forward, telling
No one where or what
I need to know.

I Know You Couldn’t Possibly Hear Me

May 21, 2020

I know you couldn’t possibly
Hear me
I know I’m in this alone
But still I feel the road
Isn’t travelled by me
All alone.

Presence, shadows hover
Near and above
Whispers in silence
Make my heart beat
As I pray for help
From those I have loved.

Now is not the time to cry
For I’ve been given
A chance
To move forward
move ahead.

Trusting in
What I know is there
Not seen
Just
Only in my head.

I Have To Hear The Singing

May 12, 2020

Wood Smiles and Sad ~ Photo by Patrice

I have to hear the singing of the song
To believe
To move forward
Not look back nor doubt
Where the words come from.

That’s the only job that’s mine
Must breathe the words
Embrace the rhyme
Never forgetting they’ve come to me
At just the perfect time.

The Answer

March 10, 2020

Morning Glories ~ Photo by Patrice

I don’t know the answer
Or
The way

Only thing I can do
Is have faith
And
Move forward
On my path

Hopefully

It is the answer
It is the way.

The Fight Is On

December 18, 2018

Lion & Rhino Standoff ~ Pastel Art by Patrice

The fight is on
Foes look eye to eye
No backing down
No clowning round.

Serious words uttered
Marching feet make
The ground shutter.

The sun looks dim
Trying to hide behind
Dark clouds that weep within.

No winners allowed
Only brave hearts move forward
No matter the thoughts
Indecisive or strong.

There is no right
There is no wrong.

Can I Venture To The Past?

Can I venture to the past?
Relax and enjoy things seen
Fix what wasn’t right
Move forward
To this time I live in now
Confident
My heart will no longer hunger
For what has been and passed.

Can I?
Dare I venture to the past?

As You Move Forward Into Eternity

June 29, 2018

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

As you move forward into eternity
Stop and look around
See majesty.

See forests, lawns, parks and lakes
See people, fawns and a most interesting place
Nothings ever dull if you but care to trace
The movement of the world
For it’s such a wondrous place.

Please move thru this time in space
With a light and tender thread
So they’ll only know you’ve been here
By all the good they felt
From your kind and gentle tread.

When I Try To Understand

November 30, 2015

Carolina Tree ~ Photo by Patrice

When I try to understand
Sometimes
The way is not so clear.

Should I take a step behind
Or move forward
So to be near
To the heart of the matter
The source of my dilemma?

Sometimes the way
My way
Is not so clear.

Days Move Forward

March 24, 2015

Vancouver Game Farm Giraffe ~ Illustration by Patrice

Days move forward
Gone one by one
Packed with something
But neither overrun
With sadness, happiness
Or blissful dreams
Days move forward
Inspite of all these things.

What you see
May be what you dreamed
Or what you saw
In an unhealthy scene
Don’t deny that it has been
For you can only move pass
When you know it’s been
As days move forward
In the scheme of things.
~ Patrice
