A Poem

The Poem by The Wife S.R.

There is no title for this poem

I give it to you to make your own

I found it while I was out on my run

Something I love to do, it is quite fun

Walking, running on a country road

Hay fields, cornrows, and Soya beans grow

Birds are singing about today’s chase

Of catching horse-flies with such a grace

Peaceful solitude

Heart pumping hard

Breathing deeply

Clear head in charge

I am in my zone, one of my favorite places

Talking with God sharing concerns and memories that embraces

Reflecting the beauty of time since March

Of when I was lying on my bed, doctors wanting my parts

After so many tests and not enough blood to continue

Immune systems wrecked and heart slowing the venue

With diagnoses in and more symptoms to add

I had enough of this route and will no longer be had

I did the unthinkable, few often do

I took what God gave, a choice to choose

Having been so close to death a few times over

No more under the knife that time is now over

I take back my right to choose how I go

Giving it to God and asking, “May it be running on a dirt road?”

His answer yesterday and days since March

Was not yet my Love continue My march

So each and everyday, in all that I do

I leave it all out there, spent and anew.

Then when He chooses the day I drop dead

Let it be said, “She ran with all her Heart and talking with Him instead.

~ The Wife S.R.

A born and raised city-chick, who found many'a smiles where her heart had always longed to be, in the country. Digging in as close to the beginning of creations, and finding wonderment with a smile. I live my life as a rollar-coaster adventure, and always adding new dreams as old ones are full-filled. Of course, I write about it all!
