I embrace laughter and lightness and living in the warmth of the sun.
With all the years I have left, I commit to brushing away the shadows
For as long as the good Lord allows me.
My wants are simple
A cozy room to write in
A shining view from my window
A place to swim during summer
Laughter and games
A good story to tell
A companion to tell my life story with
Lord, grant me the strength to see this destiny through
Give me the clarity of vision to make it happen
Give me a chance or two to take advantage of
And above all, keep the fears at bay, keep the fears away
Make regret a thing of the past.
