While I Can Still

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 ‘g.i.f.t.’ of life,
I will keep on going,
Till my journey ends.

This poem was written by a friend of mine who is legally blind and whose remaining eyesight continues to deteriorate. She is a respected advocate in her community and one I have been proud to support through a number of volunteer activities. Her words seem particularly poignant during these shared difficult times.

What would you like to be able to do, while you can still do so?

If I can find the right car I want to do a few seasons of racing.

When the going gets weird, the weird turn pro.

The only thing we have to fear is fear itself.

What a great poem its so very true, thanks for sharing it with us. And that's a true meme too, as everyday that we are here gives us strength to deal with any struggles that we may incur. I hope we are able to keep doing all these things while we still can. I hope your enjoying a great Hump day..

Seduce the mind and see what a wonderful adventure the body will take you on..

and when my journey ends - my hope is that I will have touched at least one person's life in a way that was meaningful to them. I am sure that your friend will leave that legacy to many

Good words from someone who is challenged, for sure! Makes me realize that I should follow them more closely.
Especially since... one never knows.

Very beautiful words by your friend, touching and reminding us that thru it all, there continue to be things that we can and should do.
Me? from the words of Ghandi " Be the Change....", his words really say, " if we could change ourselves, the tendencies of the world will also change"

That is my wish to carry myself in such a way , that the tendencies of the world follow suit.

In a good / positive way, of course...lol ~~

Thank you for these words!

I try to do whatever I can do, when I can. I always carry a film camera with me, because I regret it when I don't.

I play hockey with 3 guys that are in their 80's and that continues to be a source of inspiration for me. There's also a player that is legally blind and yet he's out there giving everything he's got. We forget far too often just how much we have to be grateful for.

Thanks for sharing this and for continuing to make us stop and think sexyldy!

Hopefully, we all find strength and comfort in different ways and know that each is a blessing.

I agree my friend will leave a lasting legacy. She works tirelessly in her community to bring understanding and assistance to those dealing with various degrees of sight. She inspires me every time I see her.

Often, that's exactly what someone needs - a supportive and effective listener.

We should never take life for granted. Being around her, seeing how she adapts and thrives is inspiring.

She is indeed a very special woman who is respected and revered in her community. I am honoured to know her and to support her whenever called upon.

We all have to find the approach that suits us. I always have my phone with me, not only to stay connected but to capture things that draw my attention.

Thank you for stopping by and sharing your perspective. I will NEVER forget my experience volunteering at the 2017 Invictus Games. I am also grateful every morning when I awaken to a new day.

It's the simple things like a smile or greeting that are often impactful. When I am out walking my dog, I make a point of saying 'Hello' to everyone that we see. It's interesting to watch their reaction, especially since Covid arrived and people seem afraid to even talk.
