Dignity
 



Now beginning my golden years

Observing the fragility of good health

Seeing my Mom loosing her freedom

Mobility issues suck the life out of her

 

Two heart attacks leaving her damaged

Hope of brighter days not shining right now

Understanding fully her desire for a DNR

While others might not think it an option

 

Life is golden when we live with gentleness

Our health will eventually fail us over time

Even our minds are captured in a foggy world

But deep within our hearts we can know stillness

 

The only thing we control is our attitude

Our situations and circumstances happen

When we react with peace, with inner strength

We are walking this golden pathway with dignity

~~~

2015

 

~~~
 

Dedicated to my Mom;

and to all who age

with dignity;

with grace;

with love.
