Things Change


as we enter this world no worries no cares
life comes and goes not warethe events
we too will share
aslife surrounds us everywhere
times change and we grow older
the more we learn the less we come to know
answers we search for but to far and few between
some say we have come to miss the morning dew
reason respect and honor in that change we hunt
none seem to exist chaos is all we have
thatin all we cannot miss the days grow long
nights grow short in the end we wait
just for our turn to sleep
that is what happens as things change

There! little girl; don't cry!
They have broken your doll, I know;
And your tea-set blue,
And your play-house, too,
Are things of the long ago;
