If Today

If today should be my last,
I would not regret:
sending the blue stone necklace I wanted myself
to my daughter,
mailing the sentimental poem to my grandson,
walking with my husband instead of running,
taking time to watch twelve pelicans at the fishing pier
eating their last supper.

Sherri Wright lives in Rehoboth Beach, Delaware, after a career focused on education for at-risk youth at the University of Minnesota and the Federal government. It was with the Rehoboth Beach Writer’s Guild that she discovered her love for poetry. Wright runs, practices yoga, works out, and volunteers at a center for the homeless—all of which figure into her poems. Her work has been published in The Hill Rag, Letters from Camp Rehoboth, and Inspired by the Poet.
