MY YEARS

I have traveled many years long.

I call it the journey of life.

To go out amidst the throng,

and meet what e’er the strife.

In these years I’ve completed

a plane, which I view with delight.

Then I found myself seated,

taking on life’s great flight.

When I heard the motor starting,

I settled in my seat to rest.

Then, with a feeling of imparting,

I remembered the things I love best.

Now my plane will be safe, I feel sure,

for I built it with care untold;

I know it is made to endure,

he weather, both stormy and cold.

And though the skies are unknown,

through which I still must test.

I hope to travel my way alone,

and reach life’s airport ”Success.”

MARRIAGE VOW

I turned a page today,

in my book of life, so dear.

Memories of my happy day,

to my heart there was some fear.

But I ponder at the parting,

from my friends and family, I adore.

For I know there are no friendships,

like these which I have stored.

Now I hesitate a moment,

wondering which way to turn.

Shall I be content to linger,

or be willing to work and learn?

I know the way will not be easy,

by which many go.

But the guidance of my mother,

has fitted me to fight the foe.

I turn another page;

my goal is to reach greater heights.

To be striving and toiling over.

To do that which is right.

I may never be famous,

after life’s battle is won.

But let me be content,

if my work is judged, well done.
