Phases of Life

As small children we are wide eyed and innocent,
toddle after Mommy like baby elephants,
go to school to learn with our writing implement,
our parents hoping that we don't act indolent,

As teens upon graduation were confident,
some acting wild while others are reticent,
finding our jobs and falling in love relevant,
some marry while others act more dissident,

When we get old hopefully were still intimate,
thinking back on our lives with heartfelt sentiment,
being nice with people till death is imminent,
eulogy at funeral will be evidence.

Very, very wise words spoken in this beautiful poem, Cheryl. A string of truth pearls in this monorhyme. You wear them well, my dear. Such a enlightening piece of poetry. A Souper 7 in my book. A fave for sure. I'll pass on the eulogy part at my funeral. No words need be spoken. Everything that needed to be said is summed up in life. This is a marvelous write. Love and many hugs to you.

A very nice poem -- well written! It spoke to me of how, right after graduation, I fell in love and then landed an office job besides.
