Early morning, I walked by the shore
Sat and was waiting for the sun that I adore
Suddenly a woman with a head covering appeared
She approached me and I was thrilled
She then asked me” are you waiting for the sunrise?”
I then said” yes ma’am this will be my third time.
She said” I noticed you were here almost every day”
I responded yes ma’am
I’ve seen you this early too one day.
I asked her,
“Ma’am, how are you feeling about seeing the sunrise today?
“Excited, because tomorrow it may never come”
I have cancer, I have a few months or a year to live
I want to spend my time enjoying
the beautiful sun…
I paused for a moment, my heart was broken
I felt her, my eyes in tears were sunken
She then said
” Dear you have a kind heart, but please don’t feel pity for me.
I want you to tell stories so stay a moment with me.
I showed her the photos of the sun I took
Nothing couldn’t be happier than the way she looked.
She taught me to enjoy the present which is Now
Life is not a promise
We all are going to be there somehow
