Change Poem

Life is full of hardships, but it's full of good stuff too

Than The Days Will Ever Know

© Steve J. Clymer
Playing on the Grammar School Lot,
In a Uniform I'd rather not.
One of 'The Boys' in High School'
Yeah, pretty tough and sometimes cruel.

Then one day, Love chose me
Through a girl, a last dance;
I knew'
My wife she'd be.

We worked, we loved, and grew up together;
Raising three children through all life's weather.
Traveled the country 'cause of my job,
Left family and home, late at night we'd silently sob.

One child left the nest to wed; now there are two
So many changes, life hurls us through.
With love we rejoice, yet we're doomed to suffer equal loss,
So enjoy the day and those you love, at any and all costs.

For there's one thing in life I'm certain,
As sure as the wind's gonna blow,
Make Each and Every Day count because'
The Years Teach More, Than the Days Will Ever Know.
