When I look back upon my life
As child, daughter, mother or wife
Those things that I remember best
Are those that have withstood time’s test.
The days of childhood now long gone
Which gave us hope to wish upon
All followed by the maiden schemes
To shape one’s life and seek one’s dreams.
Then on one day to find true love,
The hero she’d been thinking of
Thus starts new life and motherhood
The years fly by as all years should.
Now that it’s part of what has passed
The good, bad, strayed or could not last,
Tis sad to think that nothing’s sure
Our God alone holds reason pure !
