I Stand Here Now

I Stand Here Now

I stand here now...the winter of my life,
amazed how fast its seasons quickly flew.
Just yesterday, those days were free from strife;
in open fields, I ran 'neath skies of blue.

Just yesterday, real love swept me away
with roots that planted deep inside my heart,
which led to joys of motherhood's bouquet
that blossomed in the springtime of life's chart. 

When summer brought a lush and fuller time,
another generation came to be.
Fruit of my fruit, with each, came joy sublime;
sweet gifts of life I love wholeheartedly.

Soon Autumn found me in the golden sun 
of harvest time to reap more fulfilled days,
with new creativeness and joyous fun, 
relaxing with the gifts of its bright phase.

I stand here winter days are here.
Though firm I stay, thoughts drift to the next stage;
for winter's fickle...when she leaves...unclear.
But until then, with life, I will engage.
