Where You’ve Been

Where You've Been - Photo by Patrice

I don’t know where you’ve been  
My heart it cries 
My soul is lost upon a sea of sadness
Winds blow despair 
Through a place so sorrowful
So extreme.

Then you come
You are here once again
Joy rises 
My lips are filled with loving kisses
Thunders in my heart  
Yes, you are everything
You’re all I need.

Come lie beside of me
Let us be together
Never again
For me to wonder where
You could have gone
Where you’ve been.

You Heard Me Call

You Heard Me Call ~ Watercolour Art by Patrice

You heard me call. 

You heard me speak.

Whatever happened
you didn’t seek? 

with all that’s wrong
makes you sad
makes you weep?

No help will come
we do not know.

No trouble solved
the answer isn’t seen
the question asked.

you sit in the midst
of what
just don’t know.

My Heart Does Break

My Heart Does Break ~ Photo by Patrice

I’m sad 
My heart does break 
The good times, laughter, long walks 
For heavens sake. 

They are all in the past
Memories I won’t shake 
For they keep you near me 
With me 
How my heart does break.

My Heart Churns, It Doesn’t Beat

My Heart Churns, It Doesn't Beat  ~ Photo by Patrice

My heart churns, it doesn’t beat 
Thinking of the last time 
The last time
We would meet. 

I didn’t understand
You were sad 
Saying words that changed 

My love, my heart 
All things 
Near and far in this land. 

My heart churns, it doesn’t beat 
I hear it cry 
As all alone
I stand.

Anticipation ~ Photo by Patrice

Anticipation, excitement brews 
Tomorrow is open 
I just have to put my way on cruise. 

Glide thru the troubles 
Step over the sad 
Tomorrow is my pleasure 
A sum of all I’ve had.

Hearing The Words Spoken

January 21, 2020

Hearing the words spoken
In love and respect
Makes my heart leap and regret
All the things that I’ve said.

Not believing the actions
The smiles
The love I did get.

I know there was nothing pretend
All was truthful, out in the open
Love with no end.

I will embrace all that I have
Give back, be happy
Never again be sad.

For this that you’ve given me
I will embrace, love you forever
It’s our chosen place.

Feeling Down, Don’t Know Why

August 2, 2019

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

Feeling down, don’t know why
Heart is cold, feeling nothing
Nothing that can be told
Or reasoned why
Angry most of all at what I don’t recall.

Then there is my head
My mind it’s telling stories full of dread
It saids there is no way things will be right
Just give up, curl up and sleep
Til late tonight.

That’s when my heart beats up
Pounding, ‘Don’t give up!’
I can make it right, deep breath
The rest will come
Before falling of sweet night.

Hear things dear to your heart
Let your mind wander but don’t let it start
The bad, the sad or that which will taint
The faint of heart.

Let Me Be The One

April 9, 2019

Spike & Grinch ~ Watercolour Art by Patrice

Don’t let me be the one
The one that cries out lies
Never happy with her life
Always, always helping no one.

Don’t let me be the one
Who sees nothing pure or good
Looking every time
To the bad, the sad
Let me be not that one.

Let me be the one
Who sees beauty in everything
Feels life in the wind, earth and sky
A presence who just can’t
And won’t be denied
Let me, let me be that one.

Some Days

November 14, 2018

Some days are sad
In remembering the past
The heartache and anguish
Seems to last and last.

You know years have passed
You know all have moved on
Yet still some days are hard
The sadness seems to go
On and on.

Feeling lonely, feeling sad
Feels like I’ve been bad.

Feeling so much
Feeling nothing, feels numb.

Feeling heartache
Then feels like I should run.

Away from all this feeling
Feel something no, feel none.
