Last Wishes


I want to walk down a gravel road
Hear stones crunching under my feet
On one side Daisies and Black Eyed Susan's
On the other a field of swaying wheat

I want to sit at an old picnic table
Near a lake, in the woods, under trees
That shouldn't be asking for too much
There was a time when I did all of these

I want to ride my bike, take a hike
Dig my toes down in hot ocean sand
Smell of nature in all the pasture land
I want to rake up red and yellow leaves

Alas, a finial plea amongst all of these
Is to thank Jehovah one more time on bended knees
Stead in a wheelchair I sit, on my porch, in the breeze

  1. I love this!
    Before my accident, except for riding a bike, I can do the other things in your poem. But now, when we go out, I need to be in a wheelchair because I can’t stand for more than 5 to 10 minutes long.
    Hugs to you, my friend! ๐Ÿค—๐Ÿค—๐Ÿค—
