"Before I die I want to..." - Mrs. Jenny Matlock's Saturday Centus - Week 64

Jenny Matlock

Welcome to Saturday Centus, Mrs. Jenny Matlock's writing challenge that requests participants to write a PG-rated text in any style or genre (normally, without any pictures for illustrations, but this week we are allowed pictures), using a given prompt and only 15 words (for this week). This week's prompt is: ...Before I die I want to...



Here is my text:
------
Before I die, I want to travel wide,
And resting by your side,
Before I die, I want to do one more thing:
Hear my granddaughter sing.

------

Wordcount according to WordCalc: 15


Best wishes,

Anna



P.S.

Please note that I have two children, but not yet any grandchildren, so by wishing to hear a granddaughter sing, I am wishing for several things: first, that at least one of my children has a family; and second, that I live long enough to see this happen, and third, that I live long enough so that this grandchild is old enough to talk and sing a little, and perhaps, even remember me after I'm gone.
