Words On Life

Written by: Rick Parise

unknowing eyes  in moments gaze  to ponder within  of knowledge gained
through frightful lessons  where fire raged  and silken water's intertwined of grace
still each step  haphazard and slow   to gain momentum     for which to grow

each tumbling year  quickly rose   to fall upon the twilight road
to gaze beyond  to reflect of hope  where melancholy   had lightened the load
each silent year   of golden life   had left a novel   of joyous sight 
to crawl     to walk   to climb above   an innocent child   a man of love........
