The time is fast approaching
Soon I will be at the end
Of my lease.

Still, I find myself
In a place of inner peace.

As each days brings me closer
To the end and my demise

It makes me appreciate more fully
All that comes before my eyes.

I doggedly pursue the things
In life I hold so dear

And hold the ones I truly love
As though they were rarely here.

I intend to have as much
Happiness as I can
Before my final bill is due

And death had best be very
Patient for I certainly will
Be late on a payment or two.

Even though I know what’s
At journey’s end, I am
Savoring every day.

It is not where the
Road begins or ends
It’s what’s along the way

And if a greater appreciation
Of life is what the end
Will bring

Then surely death is not entirely a bad thing.

Well I am glad you can't see me right now, this brought me to tears, but that is just me the sentimental gal.

I wish I could rate this higher than a 10 because you surely deserve it on this one. The poem itself flows. It is like a song to me. Very personal and so very you.

I love

Thanks for the comment. I never know what kind of response I'll get when I write a piece. I just do what comes naturally and hope for the best. I'll call this weekend........The Junkyard Poet
