Life is beautiful to behold
In every aspect and stage;
From the birth of a child
Until our very final page.
Our birth gives anticipation
Of a life to be well lived,
And the growth of us as toddlers
To our parents is a gift.
We grow to new heights
And as we enter the next chapter;
With memories made during our school years
We mature in mind and stature.
We subsequently fall in love
As we marry our loving spouse,
And we look forward to the next chapter
Making a home inside our house.
And our offspring arrive in due course
Planting a smile on our heart;
This miracle of life indeed
Is a pure work of art.
As we age we appreciate
The tender moments so special and true,
And throughout our struggles we’ve overcome
To forgive and make things new.
Most times life’s direction
Is not one we anticipate;
With unexpected turns indeed
And challenges we face.
But when we’re old and frail
What’s the next chapter in store,
Since our time on earth becomes limited
As we face the forevermore.
Eternity is the longest chapter
And we must ensure we’re ready;
With a solid faith in Jesus Christ
As our hope is sure and steady.
And when that chapter will begin
Our soul will come face to face,
With our Lord and Savior for eternity
Where His love we will embrace.
