Wondering Why Or Did I See

Wondering why or did I see
How the heart mends
Without any seams.

Tragedy, chaos and most likely strife
Rip holes in my being
Then along comes kindness
Dipped in strength
Changing everything.

A smile, a laugh, a gentle caress
Hold me together
Thru anything.

I’m not wondering
I know, I see
With love my heart mends
Without any seams.

Sadly See

Sadly see panic, terror
On the face of one I love
Can’t help
Have to let it be
Pass thru, let it pass
Understand it did happen
But now
Now it’s in the past
Where you can let it be
What it was
What came to be
I can’t know nor understand
Only support and be there
To help you thru
This past, awful memory.

Husk Falls

Seeds, Tree and Squirrel ~ Photo by Patrice

Husk falls, dropping to the ground
Seeds of wonder spattered all around.

Dead or dying not necessarily their fate
Taking food, taking strength
From the earth, the ground on which
They were spat, they grow and create.

Slowly, quietly up to mighty trees
Strong and wondrous they unfold
Dropping seeds that too
Like magic wonder, grow.

Stolen From My Heart

May 15, 2018

RIP Brave Barking Dog ~ Photo by Patrice

Stolen from my heart
A sense of love
Got away.

Burdened with such
Array of emotions
Can’t hold back
Hold at bay.

Smouldering anger
Burning things precious
Held dear
Stolen, forgotten
Got away.

The Heart Is Mended

The heart is mended, the life is fine
No thought is taken
Of what happened back in time.

Moving forward, risking not
Becoming ice
In a land that’s hot.

Then in the midst of emptiness
She dares, she dreams
she dreams a lot.

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…
