There is more than one string to a bow, if you just take a look.
I can't ride a bike
I can't go for a hike.
I can't walk a mile
But I CAN still smile. :-)
I may not be able to write a letter by hand
Or do a fabulous handstand
But there's one thing I can do
Is smile and be someone to talk to.
Cooking is tiresome and not a hobby now
Anything I do is filled with lots of Owwws!!!
But if you need a chat I'll always be here
Because that's one good thing I have, is a listening ear
I can't remember the last time I danced and ran,
Or went away on holiday and got a tan
But I must count my blessings, I know I should
Because apart from that , my life and family are good
I have a husband who loves me,
And a loving family that cares
What more could I want or even need
I'm so lucky they are supportive, and are always there
I started this small poem to say what I can't do
But as I've been writing and thinking about these things
It's become apparent, that I do still have a lot to give
Which is, To help, to talk, to smile, to listen and most important, TO LIVE......:-)
