I stare out through my kitchen window

My mind is trying to register what my eyes already know

I can’t look as far as I once use to, my eyes have  a astigmatism now

I use to see for yards and yards away,

But not today.

But not anymore.

Yet, I am thankful that I have my eye sight still

There are others who do not.


As I drink my coffee this morning

My memory takes me down a path, I long ago was on.

Where things were all wrong

Where I did not matter to those closest to me

I sigh for a moment right before the thoughts escape me

I say to myself”I am not that person anymore”,

I have those that want me and love me, now.

Today, I am thankful for those who tolerate me

Those that have stayed around.


As I sit her and type away on my laptop,

While keeping an ear at to listen for my grandkids’ movements

I realize how much time has flown right by without me noticing.

The numerous times that I was not fully paying attention to

The special times that I had yet to see then,

I am realizing are now gone.

I am so much older than I ever was in my thoughts

I really hadn’t thought that far ahead.

Yet, I am thankful for the years I have been alive,

For seeing the sun and the moon rise

Having been blessed is what I have been

Now that’s the best message to convey, here at the END.

Thank you for reading 🙂
