New Chapter - Poem by Emily Casbourn

Like a book has a chapter
Life does as well
You go from being a child to a pre-teen
It has its ups and downs
It lets you understand
A new time has begun
Friends drift apart
New people arrive
You fall into patterns
In giant pieces of time
A new chapter begins
You start maturing more
Time moves you forward
You go from high school to college
Yet we still don't get why
A new phase begins
A new time commences
Someone dances
A new flame flashes
You begin to wonder what it's all about
Wedding bells sing
You wear a ring
Gold around your finger
You kiss as the time goes bye
Long lasting times go by
You start to feel sick
You start to rest more
Not because you are sick
One more chapter starts to begin
You are older now
Your grand children chase you down
You start to see them grow up
A new chapter in your life
