When I Find The Lost

When I find the lost that I knew
I’ll smile
And let my heart
Smile too.

Looking Back At Last, At Last

April 1, 2020

Looking back
You just gotta laugh
Things you thought tragic
Made life better
Later on
At last, at last.

Giving choices
Crossing bridges
Making decisions
That made you live
Live and love
At last, at last.

Looking back now
You smile
You know
You just gotta laugh
At last, at last.

Worry won’t get you there
Neither will despair.

So hold your head high
Reach for the sky.

When The World Is Laughing

When the world is laughing
And things are profound
Stand on their steps
Then lightly step down.

No holes will be barred
No one will curse or swear
Just jovial laughing
Not one bit of despair.

Hear the world laughing
Join the chorus of delight
Smile with pleasure
Let heartache take a hike.

Pull It All Together

Pull It all together
Make it your own
Smile in the face of danger
Never leave a lost soul
All alone.

Don’t Be Bitter Or Angry

June 22, 2018

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

Don’t be bitter or angry
Just be happy and gay.

Don’t let them get you down
With their toxic chatter
Even in the darkest night
There always will be a guiding light.

Dance a light step down the pathway
Smile, laugh hysterically with delight
Being happy and gay
If only tonight.
~ Patrice

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.

All Three In A Row

November 10, 2017

Patrice Clarkson's Blog

All three in a row 
Sitting, resting nowhere to go. 

Pleasant and mild 
The height of haute style 
Sitting, resting
Certainly to be there awhile.

 Ah, doesn’t it make you smile.

Seeking Solitude

August 24, 2017

Birdhouse in a birch tree ~ Photo by Patrice

Seeking solitude, quiet and a resting mind
No bitterness, no crime
No tears smearing a saddened face
Only a smile, a happy thought
A loving gesture
All things caring in this
A quiet time.

That’s what I want, I need
In this
My quiet mind.

Can I Fix It?

Can I fix it?
Will I be the one
That’s the hero
In a situation
That should not be?

Crushed and miserable
Full of doubt
Must move forward
Cast it out.

Smile with gratitude
Mean it
See it radiate
All about.

My strength and smile
Will cast misery out.
Can I fix it?
I have no doubt.
~ Patrice
