my name is shadow

my name is shadow, i am as old as can be.
i feel like i have lived a human century.
my caregivers adopted me when i
was a puppy small.
i grew up with their children,
who are now big and tall.
the years we spent together
as a family,
gave my life
a reason and
gave me
shadow...18 1/2 years loved♥
a happy "me".
but now i am getting
feeble and tired,
with joy i look back
at all that has transpired.
with gratitude and thanks
no mere words human or
mine could ever express.
i am blessed for their
kindness and tenderness.
as slowly i walk to
the corner, a new
block lies ahead.
one inhabited by angels
and where i will finally
rest my head.

Have you ever considered about adding a little bit
more than just your articles? I mean, what you say is fundamental and everything.
Nevertheless think about if you added some great visuals or
videos to give your posts more, "pop"! Your content is excellent but with images and
clips, this website could undeniably be one of the best in its field.
Terrific blog!

About Me

My photo
i am older than dirt and proud of it!!!! i have managed to incorporate my eternal 60's nation spirit with the high tech 21st century world. i am an artist/writer, who dabbles in rhyme, and, sometimes, reason. my passions are my husband, who is truly the wind that ruffles my sails, animals rights, yoga, the beach, waking up in the morning. i find inspiration in too many things to list, and far too many more to remember. i have added sketching, watercolor painting, and photography to my ways of expressing joy and gratitude. from living with a chronic illness, i have learned the beauty of each day, and treat each as another sun salutation, and another chance. P.S. all painting, poems and photographs are my originals karen Lyons kalmenson
