No One

August 4, 2022
No One ~ Photo by Patrice

No one 
No one goes down the road
I need to go
no one sees the things I see
no 
no one does

no one feels
the pain 
the shame I can’t conceal
I’m sure
no one does

But up above, surrounding me
is a presence that I know
I feel, I see
holds,
embraces me

Guiding me throughout
this perilous journey
like no one else ever does
no one
no one does.

I Close My Eyes Just To Feel My Heart

November 11, 2016

Dedicated to those that served and gave all

 

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

Dedicated to Sue, who has lost her beloved horse, Yorkie.
Our thoughts are with you.

I close my eyes just to feel my heart
Feel the pain
Please make it to depart
Lost to all never more to be
The call I loved and adored from thee.

Feel the sadness reign
Beginning down the path
Of no gladness, ecstasy
Only sadden, weeping pain.

You have gone, lost to me
Remorse is not the word
I need or want to see
Tears once of joy shattered
Left, gone no more to employ
Only rivers long, tragic and so deep
Flowing with overwhelming sadness
Do they weep.

Brought down to my knees
Blows of anguish
Anger
Morose disbelief.

Truly thought you’d live forever
Now know is never going to be
Love you ever
Ever please believe
Wanted never
You to leave me never
Ever leave me never please.

Now gone I oh so…

Morning Glory Surely Rides

July 26, 2013

Morning glory surely rides
On the tide of morning rise
Sleep was sound
Resting peacefully all around
Now we raise our presence
To the morning sun
Boldly moving in a direction
That will free us in
The morning glory sun.

I Close My Eyes Just To Feel My Heart

Dedicated to Sue, who has lost her beloved horse, Yorkie.

I close my eyes just to feel my heart
Feel the pain
Please make it to depart
Lost to all never more to be
The call I loved and adored from thee.

Feel the sadness reign
Beginning down the path
Of no gladness, ecstasy
Only sadden, weeping pain.

You have gone, lost to me
Remorse is not the word

Only rivers long, tragic and so deep
Flowing with overwhelming sadness

Morose disbelief.

Truly thought you’d live forever
Now know is never going to be
Love you ever
Ever please believe
Wanted never
You to leave me never
Ever leave me never please.

Now gone I oh so weep
I steep my heart in sorrow
Feel your presence and
Tomorrow I’ll close my eyes
Just to feel my heart
As it bleeds and weeps.

Venture To The North

June 5, 2012

Venture to the north
Up pass the fork
Lined with hibiscus trees.

Gently touch the pure
And quiet soul
Of those that tread this way
So many years ago.

Theirs is the heart
That beats
In the presence
Of all majesty you meet.

On this journey
Taken to be whole
Up north
Where the hibiscus grow.

We Have Friends

November 3, 2011

We have friends we don’t know.
They are by our side even when we don’t see or feel their presence.
Accept that when you need, they are there.
