Okay, Right Where I am 6-6-21
Sitting on the edge of the world
My life stretches out before me.
Remembering the passing years
A smile becomes laughter
Then just as suddenly, tears.
Both emotions become the other,
Hardly decipherable, how can it be?
Understanding that grief and joy
Can occupy the same space
let go and feel every bit of it.
Mixed together with some regrets
Gratitude wells up inside
Out shining any misgivings.
We live out our lives as best we can
So looking back doesn’t hurt so much
Things seem to take longer to do
I’m not as fluid as I once was,
But never mind, I am in no rush
To get anywhere these days,
’m okay being right where I am.
It’s a conundrum to be here now
Nearing what are to be my last years.
I don’t remember arriving
I simply realized, one day, I had.
So……. I’ll just make the best of it all.
