When Our Season Comes …
Summer now gone, winter is approaching fast
As the October wind comes blowing by
I stand in awe beneath the light, the moon does cast
And with a deep breath I let out a heavy sigh.
No time to stop … no time to rest
All we can do .. is our very best
The years keep coming and rolling past
The clock keeps ticking and time is flying by so fast
We look in the mirror and can’t believe our eyes
There’s no hiding … everyone must know
The years, oh how they do show
It’s in our eyes and all over our face
Hoping to age with a bit of grace
Feel the chill upon the breeze
Dear Creator, allow us age with ease.
May our aches and pains be few
May we be reborn of love with each morning dew
Lessons have come and lessons have gone
Life is our path and we must march on
Written in our memories… the life we’ve lived
May the love and knowledge gained from our travels be the gift we give
The pages of our life we turn with our own hands
May the path before you be a new beginning with no dead ends
Wisdom, our harvest from seeds once sown
May love and kindness be for what we were known.
When our journey finally comes to a stop
We’ll meet again on the mountaintop.
Our life now a whisper upon the breeze
When it comes time to say goodbye, may we pass with ease
Please be kind and smile when you see a passing dove
For our soul will be soaring with the greatest love
