Today Is A Sad Day For Me

March 28, 2018

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

Today is a sad day for me
Today was the day I knew in my heart
My mom was dying.

Nothing, nothing I could do
Or say would stop it
This I knew in my heart
But not my head.

Anguish, fear, frightened
Looking for the answer
That would save her
Keep her here with me
Sadly, not to be.

Not once did I think
That maybe she had had enough
And wished to go
Oh no.

When I look back on this day
I see it was all about me
My feelings, my hurt
My need to have her here with me.

I said Goodbye that day
While deep inside, my heart knew
My head refused
Believing we’d have more, more happy days.

That inner voice, my heart
It knew
It knows the future and has lived the past.

She passed
She passed the next day
My mom, she…

Another Year

January 1, 2018

Parker ~ Watercolour Art by Patrice

Another year just today
Came to be, passed away
Looking
To the one to come
Wishing
Hoping
For a fortunate outcome.

Come join me
In the passage thru
A year
A day
A week or too.

My Brother

August 11, 2015

My Brother

My brother has passed away
Leaving a hole
A void so deep that stays.

No laugh, no hearing his chuckle
No ‘Huh?’ accompanying
His incredulous, questioning smile.

No feeding the brown or the black cat
All memories now
No more, no more of that.

Now my brother, sleep quiet, sleep sweet
Rest now my brother for evermore
In heavenly peace.

Little Tom Thumb

May 21, 2015

Little Tom Thumb
Has passed away
This I learnt just yesterday.

His brave bold heart ceased to beat
He dropped to the ground
Quietly.

Magnificence reigned from the start
He was the leader
He had the heart.

Raced pass the others
Mane flying, hooves a blur
Into history a giant you see had occurred.

Rest in peace giant little man

Our Neighbour Died

November 22, 2013

Wayne's Home ~ photo by Patrice

Our neighbour died
He passed away
Gone to heaven
Just today.

Sadness, remorse
Deep regret
Don’t know what happened
Just yet.

Lights on, police car
Soft voices heard
All seems extremely quiet
Even calm.

Most likely
They can’t believe
He’s gone.

Passed away
In the night they say
Just heard he’s gone
Gone yesterday.

Great guy
No more to say
Our neighbour died
He passed away.
