One Last Glance

When it’s over, I want to say: all my life
I was a bride married to amazement.
I was a bridegroom, taking the world into my arms.

When it’s over, I don’t want to wonder
if I have made my life something particular, and real.
I don’t want to find myself sighing and frightened
or full of argument.

I don’t want to end up simply having visited this world…

    Very insightful entry, Nell… hope all’s well with you though. 😉

    When it’s all over, I’d like to think I enjoyed every bit of the journey as much as my “final destination”. 🙂

    Take care!
