My Grandmother would often sing, “By and By and we will understand after while”
But that was always my Grandmother’s Faith style
Yet my Grandmother would sing that very song in Church, but she herself knew the words and the church did utter a voice when my Grandmother sang that song
By and By
Live being every try
Struggles that sometimes will make you cry
But your eyes up and look high
The answer comes from thy
It’s the growing understanding phase
Through the understanding, you will witness the amaze
Heaven is testing one’s Faith
Having courage to believe
The valley below
Living is about and the accomplishments will be slow
Wisdom in years as one will continue to grow
Understanding with looking for a purpose
Reasoning with analyzing
When one looks back at their youth, understanding becomes the learning process
Living and growing with no time for recess
But I would often ask my Grandmother what did the By and By mean?
She simply sang in explanation, “By and By, you will  understand after while”
If you want to understand, “By and By in continue to learn as you live”
By and By is worth striving
Understanding is worth having
Wisdom that becomes everlasting.
