The Last Hurrah

Wil Calendar 2008 003

I want to live forever for you,

it scares me sometimes when I think of you without me.

You will be independent, I am sure of it.

You will have a job, maybe even drive

And live on your own or with a friend.

You won’t really need me

But I’m still scared to leave you.

You have so many strengths

but I know you will also have weaknesses.

Things like finances may be difficult for you,

and you will need someone to help with those things.

But, somehow, I know you will find the help you need.

You love so much, that people want to love you back.

Those people will take care of you and watch over you.

Even knowing that, I’m still scared to leave you.

I do my best to take care of myself,

to show you how to take care of yourself

and be your own best advocate.

God-willing, my last day on this earth

will be as that wrinkled grey haired mother

still cheering you on, every step of the way.
