Be Content


Though married for decades two, still,
I see discontent in your eyes;
Life took us through lanes up, downhill;
God kept us free from vice.

Some dreams may not have come out true;
Things did not happen as we thought;
We lived in righteous ways and grew;
For justice, we both fought!

Just think of ones less fortunate;
In misery, some people dwell;
We tread the road to heaven’s gate;
In life, all will be well.
