"Life passed me by somehow / But I know where it went"


Shadows

 

I have given my clothes

To my son who outgrows

Then returns them to me

 

He keeps getting taller

I keep looking smaller

Than all my family

Just by staying the same

While the son with my name

Grows like a mighty tree

 

And he is not alone

He is but one of three

Descendants who arise

To make me realize

What I have always known

Their descent is ascent

 

I stand admiringly

In loving shadows now

Of hope which I can see

 

Life passed me by somehow

But I know where it went

Great life story reflection and those of us who have children and grand children are blessed for we will see as they grow that they will be our immortality. What greater gift could we bestow on the world then the hope of tomorrow. Well done,
