Seasons Of Life


Seasons Of Life

Spring, was my childhood days, full of freedom, fun,
Innocent bliss, carefree thoughts, only sun.

An upbringing, that can be faulted, at times, was swept away.
Deserted by a family, harmful things, weren't at bay.

Summer, was my teenage years, alone, at just sixteen.
Living with, what's thrown my way, there was, no in between.

Hopes and dreams, shattered, With no priorities, in my life.
I had to hide away, my tears, no mother for my strife

Along speeds, the Autumn, Divorced, with children grown,
Recovering, from an illness, Family near, but still alone.

Now, a woman strolled, into my heart, and changed, my world, again.
Carefree times are here for me, laughter now, not pain Amen.

I live each day, as it comes, keeping a rein, on my bad dreams.
Knowing, my life, Will never again be torn apart at the seams

When Winter, comes a knocking, I know, I've reached my goal,
And will be, looking through the eyes, Of a re-generated soul

If I should die, think only this of me:
That there's some corner of a foreign field
That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
