Just one more inch

So close that’s usually how I do

Not usually you hit the mark

Or Right on

I hear

So close

You were this close

If only you made it just one more inch

Maybe living will be my talent

The one thing I did right

They’ll Mention it in my eulogy

As if I mastered the art of being alive

Not that it’s something to master

There’s no right way to be alive

That’s what I’d say

(My husband may disagree)

Jayne is a writer. On her free time she likes to be with her family hiking outdoors and traveling. New England is her home and place of birth. When asked what she wants to teach the world she replied, "Don't stop searching. Too many times, in my old life, I put my search aside for more 'important matters.' I didn't realize the thing I was searching for held what was most important; my soul purpose." Jayne works daily improving her craft and at times can get down on herself, but her favorite morning mantra is "It's a new day." and that's what she strives to start with.
