My Last Spark


 Kim Watters here. My 9 year-old daughter wrote this poem the other day while we were driving to the grocery store. Pretty profound, don't you think? A chip off the old block maybe?

My Last Spark
By Emily Watters

My light is dimming,
As I lay in the hospital bed,
Alone. With no one to come.
When I was born, a candle was lit
And when that candle goes out,
I know that I have lived a long and healthy life.
My time is near,
The candle has shrunk,
And I have done my best to treasure it.
But now the light has gone out.
With one last spark,
I say goodbye.

My newest release And Father Makes Three is still available in the stores and on-line. 

And Father Makes Three

“Your Daughter Needs You.”

She’s saved countless lives, yet there’s one person emergency room doctor Elizabeth Randall can’t rescue—her adopted daughter, Jordan. Perhaps meeting her biological father, Blake Crawford, will be the lifeline Jordan needs. The handsome, guarded firefighter takes risks every day. But facing the daughter he never knew—along with lovely Elizabeth—has him thinking about family. With fatherhood thrust suddenly upon him, there’s no way he can turn his back on his sick child. Will working together to give Jordan a second chance at life also lead them to a second chance at love?

Thanks Lynette. I think she's going to be more of a songwriter/singer as opposed to writing novels, but it's all good. :) Thanks for stopping by. Have a safe, happy 4th.

I wonder what made her think of dying. Hmmmm.

Hi Missy. I thought so, that's why I posted it. Lyn, actually when she came up with the opening line she was looking at the car dome light as it was fading. She told me so later. The rest, well, her grandfather passed away last fall and she spent a lot of time in the hospital with him so I'm hoping that's where it came from. Thanks for stopping by.
