Author Dana Redricks

By and by I look 
Toward the sky and think 
About the seasons as they 
Go by, Just like the 
Seasons we all have our 
Turn to say good bye. 
We were never meant to 
Stay, and just like the 
Season we all have our 
Reasons in this world. With 
Each passing day we have 
A mission to fulfill; it 
Is our destiny, some of 
May never know our purpose 
In life, but each of 
Us was put here for 
A reason, and in due 
Time and in due season 
I hope to learn my 
Reason because it is good 
To have purpose.
