The Future


Is it true?
that the future is always bright
in the past
there was not much light

The future is ours to behold
but what I was told
in the future
you get old

The future will come
this is sure
yours and mine
one sec. at a time

Until the final curtain
our lives uncertain
what the future will bring
will be exciting

    The future IS bright, Dave. Our youth is a time of learning, and feeling our way round our world; age is the result of our youthful mistakes (hopefully) . Age brings wisdom, knowledge, ease with ourselves, and a rubbing-off of the rough edges. Oh yes, and grandchildren! !
