Silent Memories

Ninety years old a life fulfilled The things I've seen and done Sometimes filled with heartache And others just memories of fun My wedding day jitters I'll never forget The happiness and joy I felt The day I met my Saviour As I went to the altar and knelt In college I was the Leader That everyone aspires to be I was the one calling the shots The rest were just following me High school was my careless years And girls were my reason to live I remember how my direction in life Was based on the guidance you'd give Would I ever catch the tooth fairy As she crept beside my bed And I knew that santa and Jesus was real Just because you said These memories for me could have come true And my life been long on this earth But for me this life was not to be For I was aborted at birth This piece was not written to judge anyone, only to encourage much thought and prayer before making such a big decision
