Life is Good/Short/Amazing...



Our Life


Don’t cry too much for passing years

For want of soothing children’s tears

To patch the wounds from stumbling slips

or feel a kiss from little lips


Don’t long too long for long-passed days

With their sleepless nights till morning’s rays

And hectic days and heavy cares

And the innocence of a child’s prayers


Don’t wish too much for another chance

To catch your child’s backward glance

As they held the hand of someone new

But feared the change and longed for you


For life is swift and short and turns

And children grow and change and learn

But in their learning still they know

The ones who held and loved them so


And as they venture out anew

We feel distress and pain, it’s true

Yet as they soar on outspread wings

All else just seems like lesser things


Don’t cry too much for former years

But thankful be for what is here

Then cry a little if you must

With tears of joy and faith and trust


And pass the blessing on again

To generations new and friends

To children grown whose children grow

to love the ones who love them so

 

Lord, when we look upon this life

With anxious cares and sometimes strife

As all the best and worst are tallied

Our life, within Your hands, You've carried
