My Diary

“I never travel without my diary, one should always have something sensational to 
read…” Oscar Wilde, 1891

August 14, 2042

Tonight I feel weary
 after reaching another milestone
   in my life

On and off throughout the day
 I have pondered
  what I’ve gained and lost
   through the years

People have intertwined themselves
 into my days
  while others have been set free

 I’ve encountered loss
  seen history in the making
   natural disasters’ devastation

I’ve embraced love
 in so many ways
   with an open heart

As I rest my body and mind in slumber
  I ask God to be kind 
   and allow me to wake for yet another chance
     to savor the taste of one more day
One more gift to open and cherish

               Love, Shani
