I Feel Your Presence

August 6, 2020

Fall Leaves ~ Photo by Patrice

I feel your presence
I feel your breath
Warm and sweet
Upon my neck.

I reach for your arms
Your body most sublime
But empty handed
Here I stand.

I think I have lost my mind
My soul mourns
Wails a tale of sadness
Laughter gone.

Maybe tomorrow
I’ll join you
In the bye, in the already
Long gone.

Thinking About The World Today

July 29, 2020

Golden in Trouble ~ Illustration by Patrice for Dogs In Canada Magazine

Thinking
About the world today
About all the people who have
Died
Passed away.

Most not their fault
A virus
A plague raced thru
Taking
Their lives away.

Sadness
Not gladness
Is the atmosphere
In this
Our world today.

Not Sure The Reason Why

June 11, 2020

Not sure the reason why
The sky cries
Weeps and wails
Crashing thunder
Before my very eyes

Anger, sadness
Blessed love
Not sure
Not sure which is
The reason why.

Remember When

May 28, 2020

Jackal ~ Illustration by Patrice for Holt, Rinehart and Winston's reader, 'Flights Near And Far'

Remember when a laugh and smile
Were the only thing that made
The day’s itinerary song?

Remember when laughter
And carefree days lasted
All year long
The thought of winter didn’t
Come to mind
Didn’t come along.

Then there was when
A door opened up
And seriousness came along.

No smiles, no laughter
The whole day long
Winter winds blew
And the heart was frozen
In sadness
Crying was the only song.

Life Is A Joy

Life is a joy
Nowhere is there room
For sadness
Heartache nor doom.

If you see that
All comes to be
Just what
Just what you need.

Some Days

November 14, 2018

Wood Violets ~ Photo by Patrice

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

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

My Heart Wonders

August 10, 2018

My heart wonders where you’ve been
Loved you, lost you, can’t begin.

Anger, sadness creeping in
Gentle kindness hidden somewhere then.

Feel the touch of hearts afire
Smouldering eyes, full of desire.

No one knows where it goes
Bumpy, hilly, soft or kind, rocky crevice ours to find.

Now must go where hearts do flow
No troubles, no big or little cares I’ll know.

For you see, you’ll be in my dreams tonight
Full of love, wonder, so much delight.

There with trembling lips we’ll gently kiss
Sharing loving, sweet night bliss.

When The Time Is Right

July 20, 2018

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

Tiger ~ illustration by Patrice

When the time is right and my heart is not cold
When I see things clear from stories told
When madness isn’t a partner in that yet to unfold
When I can stroll thru sadness unscathed and bold.

Then is when my journeys mine
And I’ll hold no grief for that which is not or won’t be kind.

Everything Is Orchestrated

June 18, 2018

Wood Butterfly ~ photo by Patrice

Everything is orchestrated
Nothing left to chance
No sadness, happiness comes
Just by circumstance.

Delve deep within it
Try to see the why
Know nothing will come of it
Cause just a mortal
Are you and I.

Terrible Times Do Occur

February 26, 2018

Dead Turtle in Costa Rica ~ Photo by Patrice

Terrible times do occur
Marching lines, men’s faces obscure
No more joy, lightly skipping breeze
Heartache, morse pretty bleak.

Then the sun shines oh so bright
Lighting the way both day and night
No more tears, sadness blame
All is well once again.
