Miles to Go Before I Sleep

by Betty

So much to do.

               So much to think.

Why am I here?

               What am I to do?

My heart is sad.

               My brain is numb.

                              My hip hurts.

                                             My dogs bark.

Breathe in deeply,

               breathe out slowly.

The stress is gone.

               Be grateful and thankful.

Once you thought

               you had it all.

Wake up, girl,

               there are still miles to go.
