Across the Years of Time

Where is it that you walk just once
but across the years of time.
Once gone, there is no coming back
for you’ve begun in age to climb.

There are things that you take along
such as memories and friends.
Not many other things in life
will be with you to the end.

And yet, there are those who say
age is a state of the mind.
Those things it is you think upon
make the you that others find.

All must travel this one way road
but mind what baggage you bring.
Step lovingly across these years,
LIVING LIFE- the greatest thing.

    Awesome! A very inspirational write and I agree with what you are saying. What we take to the next world is not material. So we need to mind what we think and say. Negativity breeds negativity (getting old), positivity breeds positivity (forever young). Thanks for sharing a thought provoking write. Best wishes, Caroline.
