" Open Sky " acrylic on board...S. Ashby
I Want To Be

when old age sets 
white haired and amber eyed all aglow 
A Woman who enjoyed her youth
Who savored every step
like it was the last bit of the gravy on the plate
I fought hard
to make it sing
to find my voice
to stand tall
I pray my children fly stronger on their own wings
I want to be - that woman with peace in her eyes
I fought hard for love she says . . . and won.
