It feels like 

I’m curling up

drying out

like a dying leaf

ready to drop

from the branches that give it life. 


Will You

Will you be 

my deepest joy

my greatest challenge 

my biggest heartbreak 

or all of the above? 

Let Me

Let me live simply 

to find joy in the small things 

to be content with the little I have 

to not be concerned with the “what ifs” 

or the “could have beens” 

or even “the future.” 

Today, I am happy. 

Isn’t that enough?
