I don’t want to leave with any regrets. But right now I’m a little sad that I didn’t walk to the Highway one more time, that I didn’t walk around the block and let my mind play remember when.
I’m a little sad that time kept ticking away and I didn’t get to stop, to take it all in. That I didn’t find a moment to thank this space that’s been home for all that it has given me.
But maybe I didn’t want to. Maybe I knew that a quiet mind would fuel the fear that is inside me.
So maybe I chose distraction over my kangaroos and sunrises, my blossoms and rolling hills.
And now I’m gone, but you’re still there.
And although I shouldn’t ask for time you don’t have, I’m hoping you might find a minute to take a pic of my kangaroos, my sunrises, my blossoms and rolling hills.
I’m hoping you might take a minute to capture that backyard I loved. The one I laid in for hours on end on sunny days and when the weight of the world was on my shoulders.
The one where I picnicked with my greatest loves and watched my babies grow.
The one where we fed horses and met our kangaroos.
The one where I first felt snow.
The one where we shared some of the very best moments.
I miss that home. I’m looking forward to making another, but I sure will miss that place.
