I am a writer. My passion is poetry. I feel words connect people together and help us to understand the feelings we share.
"Let Me Live With Love and Die With You" by Ricky Van Shelton
"Let Me Be Just Me"
Please don't grieve for me,
while I am still alive.
Place your worries
in the hand of God,
let him handle them.
Treat me no differently
before we knew of this illness.
Let me be just me,
Let me live each day
as I did before,
like nothing has changed.
"I'll Leave This World Loving You" by Ricky Van Shelton

I deeply apologize for missing to send you a reply. Somehow it got overlooked. I am sorry.
I am so happy you loved the words to this poem. It it one I believe in because people suffering only want to be normal.
Thank you for reading.
