Just me … (trying my hand at poetry)

For some reason, out of the blue,

a poem starting forming in my head.

Perhaps it was because I could not sleep,

That this poem came to me,

from somewhere deep.


Just me

I entered the world, my eyes open wide,

Blinking, gasping, on my own.

A sole adventure about to unfold.

I quickly learned by making a noise,

I’d be fed or changed or held,

and  things would be the same.


Soon I found my way around

and a new world was mine.

Full of wonders, full of excitement,

full of laughter,

and everything was a game.


As the years rolled on

and challenges came along,

The world started to change.

Now things were up to me,

things were not the same.


And now as I enter

this stage of my life,

perhaps the last stage to go through.

I realize I am back to square one

And will leave the world as I entered.


When the time comes,

it will be me alone,

leaving with eyes now closed,

but ready to see

what the next adventure holds for me.


Thanks for reading!
