Life’s Journey


Can it be?

That it was all

so long ago?

Coming into this world

gazing upon the sun


Childhood with bright smiles

and days of pure innocence

spent happily at play

basking in the glow

of my parent’s love

proud to be

daddy’s little girl


Teenage years of fears

and love eternal

rock and roll

and many teen idols

facing a brave new world

with a heart that was full of hope

hand in hand

with friends forever bound


The early steps into adulthood

entering a world

you’re not sure of

new dreams on the horizon

finding the one true love

these treasured moments

pass by so quickly

making us who we are


now as life

sails on into sunset’s glow

Wasn’t it grand?

Why did it go so fast?

and the eternal question

when glancing upon a mirror –

Wasn’t it really all so simple?

and are not these

the moments to treasure?

so many dreams

to still fulfill


another Christmas upon us

new wishes to make

as the tinsel sparkles and shines

upon the Christmas tree

and the angel on the tree top

rings a bell so clearly

signifying that another angel

has once again got wings


as the New Year approaches

so much still ahead

let’s remember to open the door to

new possibilities

and many more golden memories
