I want to plant the seed.

 Yes indeed, empower those in need.

 My days are not done

I rise with the sun

Nights are mine to keep

I have no fear of sleep

As long as I awaken

My life not forsaken

What’s that you say?

Yes, I’m more than okay

I’m happy to be on this ride

I take aging in my stride

There’s one thing I’ve learned

And that’s not to be concerned

Enjoy the moment you’re in

Because you won’t see it again


  “Happiness is not something you postpone for the future; it is something you design for the present.”― Jim Rohn

    I just read two excellent posts in a row that left me sad and scared, so I was especially glad to see the title of this one. Thank you for your lovely, uplifting post – and for the ending quote.
