The steps I take, one foot in front of the other,

Take me closer to our new life,

A new beginning, for you and me,

A lighter time together.

The occasions I’ve missed,

The weekends I’ve worked,

The late evenings and holidays,

The housework still waiting to be done.

They take me a step closer,

To where I belong,

The place I should have been,

All along.

Our future together,

Secure for the rest,

Of a life of creativity,

Enrichment and course.

I do it for us,

I do it for me,

Our new life awaits us,

In the steps that I take.

    • Ajaytao, you demonstrate such bravery through your blog. It was a pleasure to visit it and learn about you through it.

      Never give up the fight. I’ve known so many who have and who are battling cancer. Never lose your inner strength and never give in to it.

      It was a pleasure to make your acquaintance.



  2. Uh-oh. Poetry. I tend to stay waaaaaaaaay too long on blogs that feature poetry. Too bad LIKE buttons are not working for me on blogs whose URL’s end in It’s not you. It’s wordpress. Alas, even if I don’t get to leave lots of LIKEs, know that I was camping out in your blog today.
