Response to Don :)

Walk with me to the water,
When it comes my time.
What we saw will not matter,
Just keep your hand in mine.
I’ll cross the water by myself,
I know that’s what I must do.
But the chilling sting won’t be felt,
Because I’ve walked with you.
—-Nellie Keller

my heart mourns

for the me

that was

and

laughs

at the me

that is!

 

my eyesight

dims

but sees

better

what was

and

what is

to be.

 

i wish

for you

the wisdom

to spend

time

wisely

to see

and

be what

is now

before the

eyesight dims

and the heart

mourns for

what was

and

hopefully

laughs

with you

at what is.

   Let others lead small lives, but not you. Let others argue over small things, but not you. Let others cry over small hurts, but not you. Let others leave their future in someone else’s hands, but not you.
