LETTING GO

I wrote this 12 years ago and posted it on this blog that I had just started.  You can see where my concern was that day.  Last night there was a seminar on long term planning and I was glad that I already have a living will.

LETTING GO

Never force me to linger long
For your sake,
Staring into anguished faces
Of those I dearly love
While I am muted by unknown walls.

  1. Oh my. I keep meaning to do one but keep putting it off. My first Blog title was Stop Procrastinating & just do it! My current title of I'm Trying, Honestly is not very accurate methinks! Maybe I should change it to Must try harder!

  2. I have a living will as well. Do not resuscitate unless you can insure I have many more months and years ahead as a well and thinking person.

  3. True.
    We are far to quick to condemn people to an existence rather than a life.

  6. I've been thinking of making a living will. I'll speak to my doctor about it next time I see him. It's a good idea.

  7. With so few words, it says it all. And I totally agree...

  8. This reminds me of an Ellis poem or 10!
