Childish eyes all bright and new,
all encompassing,alive,
unending days,years ahead,
sleep comes easy in our bed;
Taut skin,strength of vibrant youth,
old age remote and unthought,
the future is tomorrow;
Our seed into another
soon springs forth and generates
rings to the family tree,		
pa to granpa,comes to be;
Then at this one step removed
we step aside and observe,
reflect,look back,not ahead..
sleep,less easy,in our bed.

Love knows no boundaries within its heart,
once given in intimacy,cannot cede
an inch of territory to depart
the mutual promise, bound close by deed;
Love in its passion,holds all things clear
yet lays wide open,giving its all
and lives its life ,trusting without fear
a loyalty innate,of instinct's call;
With faithfulness it lays foundations sure
against all tribulation and heartbreak,
death's tempest certain storm,it can endure,
held by unseen pillars that cannot shake;
With neither rule,nor scale can we measure
the height,depth,breadth of this priceless treasure
The end may become a beginning,
to go away can be to arrive,
life,as nature has its seasons,
sometimes short but oftimes long;
To sense the aroma of change,
to experiment a new attire,
walking without a map,
looking forward,neverback;
The past,as yesterday,will ever be
remembered,blessed,but filed away,
a stage,a stepping stone
a springboard to another day.
Today is done,tomorrow will be
a future adventure,rests with thee.
