The Seasons Change
And So Does Life

Countless colorful leaves are falling to the ground
Soon they will disappear under a blanket of snow
A reminder the Fall is surrendering to Winter
The season children always believe comes too slow.

Stages of human life are much like the seasons
During our young years we learn right from wrong
Many other important things we are taught
Then seemingly overnight our childhood is gone.

Education complete, men and women meet and marry
Soon they are blessed with children in their home
The years creep by quietly but ever so fast
Children grow up, once again Dad and Mom are alone.

Dad and Mom cannot believe they are grandparents
It seems only yesterday their children were small
Dad and Mom both realize they are growing old
And know their Winter will soon overtake their Fall.

The Seasons Change And So Does Life.....
