“What you are is what you have been. What you’ll be is what you do now.” – Buddha
I first wrote “I Blinked My Eyes” in 2003, reflecting upon how quickly my sons had grown up and how it felt like time had slipped away.
Then, in 2009, after my husband Marty passed away ~ this poem took on a deeper meaning. It has been revised to be reflective of my thoughts of today. Even though the essence of this poem is one of regret, I now understand that one should stay in the present moment because, truthfully, that is all we have!
Please listen to the song I Blinked My Eyes composed and sung by Philip W. Leber. The poem can be found in the book “Emerging Voices-Living On.”
