As we enter the winter of our lives,
And everything is falling apart..
Our heads have become cauliflowers of white,
Our skin a parchment of ancient times,
Our eyes swimming in the yellow river of strife,
Our hands snarled and mangled from
Hours of chores and wrestling with time,
Our minds have become a minefield of
Nostalgia and wishing and wanting….
For lost youth and shine.
The ravages of time may have claimed us,
But in our hearts we live the evergreens of grace,
Faith and love.
The evergreens that braved the storms, and cold and
In our hearts, summer begins and never ends,
And in our beings the spring of God’s enduring love
Flowers again and again.
