The Branches

It’s brilliantly sunny but blustery cold.
The branches are heartily swaying;
And though I grow older, I’m younger than old
(Though I still try to cover the graying).

There’s plenty to time left to savor the days
No matter the sky or the weather,
Though I cannot be sure if a crystal ball gaze
Might reveal myself snapped from my tether.

The future’s a question mark, there’s no debate
So I guess I should live in the now
And delight in the dance that the branches create
For as long as my time will allow.

    Can relate to the greying hair lol but you do send out a powerful message Ilene - live for today:-) My hubby's cancer was a huge wake up call to us Ilene and we cherish every day we have... after seeing the terrorist attack in London and the tragic deaths it makes you realise you have to grab every opportunity:-) hugs Jan xx
