Just out of the womb
a whole life waiting to bloom
seasons begin to change
summer turns to rain
to think of tomorrow
as we start to remember yesterday
bodies grow inches
that turn into feet
and as each year passes
we realize life isn't so easy
so live life to the fullest
while its here in our hands
slipping slowly
life is like sand
even when our heart is heavy
and we begin to see the world
it isn't a Disney movie
there is no breaking the spell
these monsters are real
and they're out to kill
so when we have a family by our side
waiting at home
after the bumpy ride
we grow to see the importance
of a safe place to hide
to gain our strength
when life hits too hard
show the ones how much we care
patience and
never taking for granted our existence
knowing we make a difference
and can help someone everyday
never put a limit on loves display
give what you need
and get it in return

And as we start to age
we see how beauty fades
its then you will be happy with the choices you've made
because our inner beauty turns gorgeous
from the full life we've lived
our children remember us
for what we give
our grandchildren remember us even as we fade
our friendships prevail
even through old age
our spouse loves us more
with our grey hair
lived a life with someone
even here with wrinkles on your face
family and friend
every step of the way

What will you say when its our time to go?
do not regret the past!
live life now as a whole!
do not spend life searching for secrets
then you will miss what's there in front of you
and it will be too late to figure out there are no secrets
life is a surprise
so never let go

When we complete our map
and we've reached our dead end road
pass on the map
teach someone new how to grow old
