Tag Archives: Saturday Centus: Prompt: If I die young

If I die young…

it will be in another life time now..

When I was young,
a young wife,
a young mother,
then not so young mother,
it was on my mind.
Often.
.
There were times
the diagnosis
wasn’t kind,
and, being a nurse,
I’d head for the diagnosis
and nursing books…
long before the internet.
.
“What would my children do”?
Who would take care of them
and make sure they grew
to a fine woman
and successfull  man ?
I had plans for them.
.
I’ve watched them grow
to adulthood,
and now middle age…
themselves parents.
.
So, young readers,
we never know what the fates
have in store for us…
we all worried
as you will, too.
.
More mature readers
will tell you,
they had similar worries,
scares, and close experiences
that made them wonder,
what will happen to those I love,
If I die young…..
.
