In Response to Your Letter

I’ve read it, reread it, read it again.
What could have been…
So sweet and so sad.
All the stories I could have had.
So determined to go my own way
Then losing myself in the day-to-day
Until at last myself I find
Past 60 and at last in sound mind.
Understanding and wisdom came very late
“Too soon old, too late smart” my dad would state.
Regrets? I’ve had more than a few.
But she waited for you. She waited for you.

About Sharon

Like anyone who lives long enough, I have experienced great loss and survived. I am convinced that my survival depends on my own participation in creating the reality I am living in, and I am determined to be a thoughtful and active participant/creator. These writings are my way of documenting that creation. As the song goes, "I will survive!" I chose the title Staying Vertical because I find that surviving isn't just staying on my feet physically. Keeping my thoughts and emotions on the vertical plane keeps me alive and moving forward. Thanks for joining me!
