12 year anniversary: a love letter

dear wheelchair,

happy 12th anniversary. i can't believe it has been 12 years since you swept me off my feet.  i don't know what i would do or where i would be without you. you are the reason i am able to get out of bed each morning. we've had our good times and our bad times, but you're always there to hold my hands along the way.  sometimes i wonder what life would be like without you, but i'm grateful to have you in my life. 

we've been inseparable all this time, and i sometimes feel guilty to be so needy and dependent on you, but i know in my heart that you wouldn't live on without me either. your constant support truly gives me the strength to push myself to bigger and better things, further and greater lands.  sometimes you hurt me, but i know you don't mean it. both you and i are tired of everyone staring, but i like to think they're just baffled at how you landed such a pretty lady. 

i don't know what the future holds for us, but i know you'll be there me forever. i hope that one day i will not need you anymore, as we both grow and mature.  maybe then you can give someone else a life as fulfilling as mine.  

for now, you're my other half.  you're a part of me.  and i can not live without you!


a 1EG self portrait with my other half !

  1. What a nice, witty and even funny post. Thanks for sharing it :) Also, awesome self-portrait!

  2. Very inspirational. It hasn't seemed to slow you down.

  3. Oh so very very clever. I enjoyed that read very much.

  4. KC, great piece of work..great piece of art! I know what it is to be challenged in life physical. And I found also the hidden place where poets and writers live. Hello neighbour are my first words to you ( I bow down and take my hat of like a proper French poet and musketeer does) Au revoir mon petit fleur..
