Approaching the Middle of the Road

by Trina Williams-Emigh

I'm somewhere inside my head
Where idle thoughts never creep
Where nothing matters
But everything is deep

Where who I was assures me-
That I'm still the same
And though I'm fading slowly
My life is still aflame

So far I've wasted no time
Spending my life adrift
For I consider my existence
A most wondrous gift
So I thank my CREATOR
For creating me
Plus the birds in the sky
And the animals in the sea

Now time goes by yearly
And what I treasure dearly
-seldom ever change
But what I'll leave behind-
Will constantly be rearranged
In the memories of my loved ones
And the stories that they'll tell
Of a mother
Of a sister
Of a daughter
-who bore life quite well
And offered her heart sincerely
Because she saw the big picture very clearly

Now there are times I wish for better days
And am thankful to receive them
So I try to keep a positive attitude
Upholding understanding and acceptance as my anthem

I also make certain to gather around myself
Those that give me joy
And I always remember
To keep kindness in my employ 

So moving toward my prime is wonderful
Though some days aren't so great
I still look forward to the mornings
Because death again I have escaped

Now of death, I am not afraid to embrace
For I am divinely spiritual
Believe in every miracle
And I know to one day meet the CREATOR, will be my saving grace 
But for now, my life, I'm not ready to replace
