I Wish

I wish that sometimes I just might

Live life less deeply and basque in delight

To see the world and not dig in

To think things through – no need to win

I wish for light, for wisps of air

To walk so lightly without a care

Were I to shed my memories

To live today, my life at ease

I wish for happy and glory-filled days

Where one can drink upon which we gaze

A sip or two just here and there

No worry, no haste, no burden to wear

I wish my thoughts could drift away

And bring me to a place of play

Where life is simple and care-free

Where you are you and I am me

About inmycorner

This blog began as an opportunity to tell my Dad's stories. I sat with him and the computer and together we told stories. It was a wonderful way to get to know Dad. He was 9. He and Mom had a wonderful life together and since she passed away a year and a half before him - Dad was ready to join her. I no longer tell his stories but have found stories of my own. The impetus to resume this blog was the discovery that I had stage 4 ovarian cancer. Since blogging had been so therapeutic for my dad and I to get through our grief, I felt maybe this would be a good outlet to process my situation. I also hoped it may serve as an outreach to anyone else who is facing this very ominous journey. So far, so good.

    You are not alone in these thoughts! Even King David said “…O that I had wings like a dove! For then, I would fly away and be at rest.” Psalm 55:6
