I am getting older; the days seem shorter,
But more beautiful with each passing year.
I am filled with gratitude as my time here draws nearer to the end
and I am able to take the time I need to look around and really see and appreciate this life.
Who knew it would all go by so quickly…
I want to spend the rest of my time loving and living every moment to the fullest
In truth and joy.
And with truth comes power. Power to see things as they really are.
Power to be who I really am, finally.
My growing love and appreciation of life accentuates the beauty in the ordinary
Making everything extraordinary in its own way.
I now see clearly the beauty and magic in the color of sweet potatoes, a robin’s spring song at dawn, spring peepers serenading each other,
The smell of freshly mown hay, the light in a baby’s eyes, and
The sound of my lover’s heart beat in my soul.
There is a smoothness and subtle grace in every action I take, not because I bring it, but because it already exists everywhere if you just take the time to see it.
I have no more room for lies and no time to waste.
There is only now and now,
