As a child, I play often as I can.

I run, skip or pretend to be a band.

I fill myself with ice cream from my spoon.

As my stomach stretches, like a big balloon.


As a teen, no one knows better then me.

I often believe only what I can see.

Mom and dad have grown too old for me.

I often tell them just to let me be.


As a parent, I play from time to time.

I spend most of my time earning each dime.

I try to help my children avoid my mistakes.

Yet my advice, they often refuse to take.


As a grandparent, my play times are rare.

Itís a challenge for me to climb each stair.

I thank God for added life each new day.

As of yet, He has not called me away.

This is the kind of poem that I want to gather like a treasure and share it with others. God has enabled you to write with such stunning simplicity and yet with such power. Praise the Lord my heart cries out!!! Hope you share more of these brother.
