While I Can Still


This poem was written by a friend of mine who is legally blind and her remaining eyesight continues to deteriorate. She is a respected advocate in the blind and partially-sighted community. I have been proud to support her through a number of volunteer activities.
I have shared this before. However, her words seem particularly poignant during the past few days and helped me put things into perspective.



While I can still…
See and hear,
Walk and talk,
Smell and taste,
Feel and touch,
Laugh and smile.
I will keep on going.

While I can still…
Dream and hope,
Forgive and let go,
Believe and trust,
Love and care,
I will keep on going.

While I can still...
Give thanks and appreciate,
Find peace and joy,
Keep the faith,
I will keep on going.

While I can still…
Breathe the gift of life,
I will keep on going,
Till my journey ends.

This was beautiful. It brought tears to my eyes. It reminded me of my mother and her health issues we are facing.
My mother does this every day and she is a strong woman who is fighting every day to live life to the fullest.

The Light is shinning and she is lonely and waiting in the darkness.

No doubt there are many individuals who want to live life to the fullest. It certainly is better than the alternative.

I am the one who feels blessed and honoured to have met her. No matter what is going on and the struggles she faces, she smiles and takes time to say ‘thank you’.
