Forty Circles


Forty circles around the sun
how many more until I’m done?
We never know
how much time we have
and this knowing
renders this moment
All we have is now.
It has always been this way
and whether we like it or not
each day we are growing older.
We may as well love
what is happening to us,
around us, within us–
because what is the alternative?
We are the Universe
as we know it.
Live so that
at the end of it all
you know you loved,
laughed, hoped
and helped
as much as you
possibly good.

    • Thank you dear! Tonight I was taken out to dinner. My mom, dad, sister, husband and two children were there. My son slept with his head on my lap through most of the meal; it was so sweet. Love to you! ❤
