I write what I feel…

Wishing the Time Away


Wishing the Time Away

I never thought I would deteriorate
To living from meal to meal,
Growing to reflect just what I ate
By just wishing the time away.

Wednesday will see me back on my legs
And using the muscles that slept,
Standing again on my own two feet
And taking some tentative steps.

Recovery is on my horizon at last,
Exercise will fill my day,
Time will grow wings and take to the sky
No more wishing the time away…

I am a middle-aged South African woman, living in Johannesburg. I began writing poetry towards the end of May 2010. I love animals – sometimes more than people! I am back after a break. Thanks for still being here, if you are! Missed you! xxx

  1. That’s beautiful adee – and very positive!


  2. How did you manage to break your leg?


  3. I wouldn’t have said you wished your time away, Denise.
    You gave us so much pleasure with your blogs, and that showed me your mind was working full pelt while that frame held you bound.
    So congratulations for making so much use of your captivity.
    and on your gradual release.
    All the best for this week.


  4. I agree with John ~ you’ve put your time to good use:

    Recovery is on my horizon at last,
    Exercise will fill my day,
    Time will grow wings and take to the sky
    No more wishing the time away…

    Hope Wednesday is here before you know it! 😀


  5. Amen to that, and what Dad said 😀 Let every day be the best one yet, Denise!


  6. I’m so happy you are up and at it again Denise. When we are sick perhaps it’s not the time we are wishing away but the being infirm. hugs


  7. Welcome back to Good Health Denise. It is a blessing for endurance of critical mental stress. You came out successful! God Bless You and your poetic endeavors.

    best regards,
    NS Murty


  8. i understand this through my mom when she broke her leg…i hope that recover continues well and that you dont have many lingering effects….


  9. Too often I don’t wish the time away but just seem to exist until a particular time is here. Like payday, or a holiday or something else in the future and don’t feel the interim.


  10. Oh, Carl, that’s what I try not to do… We’re supposed to live IN THE MOMENT, which I can understand, although it’s hard to do, otherwise we waste a lot of our lives!


  11. How wonderful to hear you say
    The time at last has come
    To stand up on your own two feet
    Just where you started from!

  12. Oh yay, adee, so glad you’re closer to getting out of there!

  14. Beautiful poem, Adeeyoyo – we have had the benefit of that time 😀 here’s to upright, upwards and onwards


  15. Everything is going to be alright. I just know it. Your poetry continues to get better and better!
