Beseeching Denouement


Denouement, I beseech you, take your time. I see you lurking closely by my gate. I want to live and love and write my rhyme. Go finish someone else’s tale. I’ll wait! I need no resolutions in my life. One moment to the next I’m glad to live. I’ll take - along with good times- all the strife along my path. Denouement, do not give an early summing up to this nice plot which is my life. Oh, let my climax be a long way off! My final page is not a page that I await too eagerly. If my end is soon, don’t be forthcoming. Let them say I never saw you coming! Written Aug. 21, 2016

Great! How dare she put you in last place! (I'm kidding -- partially). ;-) Love the line, "Go finish someone else’s tale. I’ll wait!" Congrats!

This brought tears to my eyes, Andrea. Such a heartfelt, begging prayer to 'denouement' that you implore right now in your life. Beautifully written...stay positive and strong...and you will win! 7 Hugs, Sandra

Andrea, Lord willing you will live another 40 years. Just continue to enjoy each day. Before you know it, you'll be 80 then 100. That is how fast time passes. This is a little depressing at first but then it changes to be so positive. Great sonnet!
