I hear your message loud and clear and applaud you for a deep
and meaningful poem which provides an insight to your life's journey.
Your thoughts are well expressed, the meaning is clear and I think the positive message in your last two lines is a message for us all- we can live our lives or choose to fritter life's moments away afraid to die.
well, you need to keep writing and inspiring others. Hopefully you'll be around for a long time sharing your words of wisdom. I enjoyed this poignant write I suppose partly because I am getting there, too :) Nice job :)
This was a sweet, nostalgic poem that conjures up an image of your fine self doing what you said: "gazing up skywards", musing on the life you've lived, and also knowing that when the time comes, you'll be ready.
But yeah...ya need to write a few more wee poems afore ye take off sonny-boy, otherwise we'll set the dogs after you lol! Loved the poem and hope you'll be around for a fair while longer yet xoxoxox
