I was fit, busy and alive
Took time to see and do.
Now from my chair I ponder
my dreams ever coming true.
Yesterday was full of hope and good will
A future to be had and explored
Today the curtain is pulled down
on a goal that cannot be scored.
What is to become of me
A life with no meaning, shows no future.
I always thought I was part of a plan
But now I see that was a scam.
What I wish for now in my life
is easy to have by most.
Be wanted, needed and still be Me.
To arrive at a place where life won't coast.
So this is my new plan.
Be strong, push limits, avoid guilt, say no.
Forget what I can't do, remember what I can.
Brighten each day with family and friends in tow.
