light the way

this time of year

is darkening every day

a few less hours of light

counting the blessings now

is a good way to help us see

why this time of year comes every year

I have what I want

but I wish for more

so I breathe and smile until

I hit the score of

realizing it is the person beside you

who can account for me being

and for my partner seeing

how we have grown wiser

and yes, sillier, in our young senior years

We have to laugh more

smile more

pray more

breathe slowly more

One never knows when we will soar

and when that happens

like who was keeping score?
