May 23rd………POEM – “Eternity’s Road” by N. Elliott Noorlun
As I stand here upon, Eternity’s road,
Viewing life’s travels of mine,
I ponder the joys, Of those times in my past,
And treasure those days, So sublime!
Musing upon, My grandparent’s lives,
To see how they lived out their days.
And I’m pondering what, They must’ve endured,
Securing His best for their family’s ways.
And then there’s my own life, Upon this same road,
With my own successes and trials.
The joys of this sweet life, With all of its mirth,
As I’ve traveled this life’s many miles.
As I now approach, The winter of my life,
I face a new road and its bends.
With grandchildren growing, And showing us all,
That the glory of life never ends.
I only wish they, Could stand in my stead,
To view what my own eyes have seen.
To appreciate perspective, Of life’s varied seasons,
And to relish each past family scene.
Yet, I gather that someday, They too will take pause,
To look back to the past and ahead,
As they remember their days, And their grandfather’s ways,
For I’ll bet they also, Will find joy in life’s thread.
