Grasping the Wind
You can’t hold on to what you will never have…
Those days of youth and vigor pass as we age
leaving some grasping for what is lost;
Seeking a fresh a new look // a temporary fix.
No matter how much we doctor up our body
or keep a regimented exercise routine…
It is still the same old engine wearing down
purring along with a few hits and misses;
But. still with the same number of miles on it!
Replacement parts and filler do not change
the fact that in time life will run its course.
Temporary fixes are just that…. Temporary.
Live life to the full as long as you can…
Don’t fight the finality // embrace it.
Enjoy family and friends who love you as you are;
Think of all the lifetimes you have already lived.
When this temporary one passes…
God’s light and love will carry us on
to something more permanent and lasting.
Fall seems to be a time of reflection for me. The approach of winter always turns my thoughts to my on winter of life and what it means. These are some of those thoughts that passed through my mind today.
