Looking at life in a different way
As age crawls day by day
Through cracks and ripples
As a well used road.
Realizing what is important
What is false, what is true
Of family lost and friends gained
Of money earned and money flitted away
And the only thing that makes sense
Is the love of those few
Who never wavered.
Of learning -
That love survives because it forgives
encourages, comforts, and caresses.
a life well lived.
