as the final hill comes into view

I’ve loved my life
I never had regrets,
I always thought people who had them,
Never really pushed the boundaries
Of this old life, enough to embrace it

Now I’m at a time in my mid-life
I have done most everything I dreamed of
I’ve lived a humble existence,

I never really needed anything
Because I was born poor

And as my final hill comes into view
Which it will, one day for me too,
I shall be glad I had this time on earth

To cherish

Nature and the sun, the moon and all that comes
From being alive.

Review Request (Intensity): 
I want the raw truth, feel free to knock me on my back
Last few words: 
As The Final Hill Comes Into View, I have used scribblers title two times, one was a comedy and this one a bit more serious, just to once again push my own boundaries of my writing. I hope that you have enjoyed both poems of the same title. i learnt a lot at the title workshop and just wanted to share with you that a title really can go anywhere.

Dear Geezer my intent is to say i never needed anything, but thanks for always reading and rescuing.
This is the very first poem i have ever written of this nature , i
i wanted to honour stans title, with something that he himself often speak about in his poetry, always always a pleasure to see you.

Thank you...Teddy

Dear Teddy, your poem is lovely and full of hope and gratitude. Nothing to nit. The title is rather long for my liking, but nothing to worry about, just me.
I also emphasize with the content, my parents were poor immigrants to Argentina, but they worked hard and gave me a good upbringing. I won't repeat myself, I think I've said enough. Well, despite having lost two sons who were way too young, I can still enjoy life even tho' I think of them every day, as well as my late husband. I've also travelled a lot, so this pandemic is a sort of rest along the way, tho' we can take walks and some cafes will open this week.
Your poems always cheer me up, thanks so much. Gracy

The title was from the title workshop one of scribblers 'Stan' I am always grateful when you grace my page. Nothing wrong with a poor upbringing it's what we do with what we have that matters! Always lovely to hear your words and yes covid has really given us the means to rest and pause if nothing else.

Thank you...Teddy

On a day to day basis
find at the twilight of the day
they have found the darkness entwine the daylight
only with a hope the dawn twilight will be born aright
for all to look upon
as long as there is day light today
another day
lovely good day
another life's day
gone away

a tomorrow will surely come
as another today
so why not on this only
we all must not make hay
as long as sun shines today
tomorrow it may
not may
but could rain and humour drain
while some humour and life sustain

each one has own choosing
of his lively day
so have you
No 15
some day
or another day
let's call it today

You are always so beautiful with your words, as you can see this is the
tail-end of the title workshop that I was thrilled to be a part of so in any case it's so nice to see you on my page!

Thank you...Teddy
