What I Wish For - Poem by Giselle Braeuel

Sleep undisturbed as death at night
Books, not too deep, not too light
My house, not a palace but cozy it be
Nice and comfortable, no luxury
Food, good to look at, to the body kind
Simple and healthy, giving peace of mind
Music, all kinds to fill my soul
To play, to listen to, to make me whole
A garden, not artful, but what nature does yield
Just green grass and some flowers, like a field
Family, grandchildren, to gladden my eye
Friends to love and to be cherished by
All this to brighten my life's fading space
So far it's been so pleasant this my race
All this presents me with a happy state
To god I'm grateful for my fate
For sun or cloud I'll gladly pray
And be thankful to have lived another day
