Lyra,this touched my heart. I pray you get well soon, and prove the idiot doctors wrong,
show them a miracle!
I don't like getting old, but you are so right, when fate tries to take away the chance, it certainly look more appealing. Take care,

M.Munkster:  this is an important write: for both writer and reader.
What it says, and doesn't say, but implies are the sum total of our
worth as people at the end of our journey, when we are forced to
look over our shoulder.  May you be blessed with someone beside you
to share those golden moments with.  ~hug~

Oh, dear Madame, your hair will be silver and your eyes will twinkle, and your smile will still be a joy to everyone, when you grow old. Wonderfully written. Chris

Life is not measured by breaths you take, but by moments that take your breath away.

I will love you, Lyra, no matter how old you get to be. And I plan to keep writing about your poetry here for a long, long, long time!

Lyra - This is a privilege you shall share in.  I see plenty of wrinkles and 50 pairs of grandma shoes in your closet in the distant future.lol  This poem of yours sure makes growing old seem so nice.  It also reminds us that we should cherish each day no matter what age we are.

Lyra~

I am so late on all my replies, I have taken a few days to reflect life and what it means....I need to do this sometimes, we all do.....I know you will shine bright, and have that twinkle in your eyes, and as much love in your heart, as you have shared among these pages....I keep you in my prayers daily....and wish only peace for you....


Lauren~

Step through the
barrier of my mind,
enter my soul,
feel my desire,
let my eyes guide you
into the shadows
of my heart

Lyra,
You will never grow old, that's a state of mind and your mind is as young as it gets.
