My Bucket List

What would I like to do before I leave this earth?
Mmm let me think, ah I know, I’d love tea at the Ritz with Colin Firth

I’d love to see my son graduate; I know he’s worked so hard
A visit to Easter Island and Pompeii would also be on my card

Some people would wish for money and some for fabulous wealth
But I consider myself so wealthy, because I have my health

I’d love to be a grandma; I hope this happens one day
But that is not on the cards yet, but it may happen who can say

I’d love to have my poems in print and write a poetry book
Others would be able to read my words; I hope they would take a look

We don’t know what is around the corner and when our life will end
But friends and family are so precious to me and on them I can depend.

I'd never heard of a bucket list until the last few years - guess I would add one thing to this and that is to meet my poetry writing partner Darren Watson - sadly he's ill at the moment and we haven't written in 6 months but I would so love to meet the man who has encouraged me oh so much during the short time I have been writing:-) hugs Jan xx

A long as i live long enough to see my son graduate from university then i will have achieved everything iI could wish for - the other things are 'nice to have' but to see him spread his wings and fly - can't think of anything more I want

Aww thanks for the comment SKAT. Have always wanted to visit there and Pompeii. I don't want much - most important thing is to see my son graduate the other things are nice to have .... and as for Colin Firth - well a girl can dream! Jan xxxx

Those are a few nice personal wishes. I hope you get them someday. You have described everything here well. Just add the preposition "to" between "visit" and "Easter" in your fourth line. Also, add another "i" to the end of "Pompei".
