Let us answer when life calls

Walk with me to a hopeful place

Where wishes may come true

And let us wish together

For a more hopeful and youthful “you”

Many years upon this earth

You’ve been through many things

Still – have some hope and have some dreams

Your faith will surely bring

Come walk with me through fields of joy

And bask in appreciation

Winds will blow upon your face

If you turn towards the sun

Look upwards, up towards the sky

There is a clear light that shines

Have hope, my dear, that soon one day

The faith you hope to find

Come walk with me straight on till dusk

Our shadows draw quite long

Life’s been kind to us, my friend

We’ve sung our glorious song

So much more awaits each day

As we waken from our sleep

Have faith, have hope, have courage then –

Our lives are ours to keep

Come live with me, please come alive

And look beyond the walls

Life is big – life is bold

Let us answer when it calls.




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.

    Beautiful sentiments yet again my friend.

  2. Very aware Stacey, of not answering that call. I don’t want to sit and ignore it, and then regret it later. Well done friend!

  3. Lovely thoughts — and a challenge!
