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.

Show Me If I’m Right

December 3, 2020

 Show Me If I’m Right ~ Photo by Patrice

Show me if I’m right
And even if
I’m wrong.

Let the path direct me
Where I need to be
Right or wrong.

See the skies
Hold me on the earth
So strong.

And when my days
Are finished
Carry my soul to that world
Where I belong.

What Will Be The Answer

December 2, 2020

What Will Be The Answer ~ Photo by Patrice

What will be the answer
what will happen here
will we rejoice with happiness
or
will all wonder disappear?

So many gone
so
many not here

I wonder what the answer is
and
will I be able to accept
what I hear?

We All Sit Here

November 27, 2020

Finches at Feeder ~ Photo by Patrice

We all sit here
Giving not a thought of summer’s hot
Seeds drop here and there
We flutter about with what seems
Not a care
Blissful in winter’s coat
We peck and munch
No time to crack a silly joke.

Santa’s’ coming soon
We hear
But to him we don’t give a care
For we see him
Flying in
Bringing packages
None which
Are for me, you, I or him,

We just sit here
Eating seeds
Life’s good it appears
It seems.

The Moment

Enjoying the moment
Enjoying the scene
All its well
And in some instances
Serene.

Blessed be this moment
This moment I’m in
Only me in this moment
And never to occur
Again.

Suddenly

November 16, 2020

Suddenly ~ Photo by Patrice

Suddenly
in the midst of nothing
something emerges
good or bad, sad or mad
blessed with love or just in love

Suddenly
it’s all that I have.

Remember To Love

November 12, 2020

 Remember To Love ~ Photo by Patrice

Remember to love
And
Respect thy self.

Let no man, woman or child
Be above the love you show
Yourself.

For if you are lost
To the thoughts of another
You are lost to you.

Hard as it may be
Love with gentleness
Respectfully.

Hard To Know

November 11, 2020

 Hard To Know ~ Photo by Patrice

Hard to know, hard to see
everything in focus
and clearly.

Readjust, move to the centre
centre of everything.

There in the midst of greatness
You’ll be part of and it’ll be
all of thee.

Holding Up The Light

November 10, 2020

Holding Up The Light ~ Photo by Patrice

Holding up the light
searching all thru the night
seeking happiness
in the darkest places
trying desperately to turn on
even a glimmer of light.

Maybe tomorrow
when the sun shines it’s light
I’ll fine the joy and happiness
I’ve been searching
seeking
all thru this dark, dark night.
