Today's poem is by Kerrie O' Brien


I want to have the blessing
Of a deathbed

In a house that is a shrine
To all the favourite parts
Of my life

I want to thank the well-loved
Bark of my body
For all it has done.

I want my spirit to go out
Like a laughing child

Running through the fields

And all along the white
Sands of the sea

Ready for anything.
