Things Change~

a-a-a-ah! I thought Poetic Bloomings said 'take a line from a favorite movie' They asked for the title...oh well, this still remains a favorite line for the inspiration of this poem...I'll try a title later:) My kids are coming off the bus as I post this.

Things change. They always do, it's one of the things of nature.
~Bridges of Madison County~

Things change…
For better or worse
Blessing or curse
Things never stay the same
In the hour of sorrow
There is hope…
…for tomorrow things will change
And in moments of laughter
We know
They will echo
Long after
The good-byes and the tears
Because we realize now
Things change
And somehow the years
Make us more keenly aware
Of this absolute truth
We cherish moments with care
While dreamers of youth
To the great beyond
We dwell
In the desire
Of this moment... on…

In the midst of  all change One remains changeless....thank-you God.


  1. I love this movie, too!
    Beautiful poem, Janet.

  2. Thank-you Sasha..I have not watched it in a while but there are a few lines I remember;)

  3. I haven't seen the movie (will have to add it to my list!) but I love your poem; change is opportunity, and opportunity does not exist without change, and to take advantage of every opportunity that God places before us, we must embrace it and look at all the positive possibilities that exist if we change our attitudes, our perspective, and our thinking. :)

    Great post Janet!


Thank-you for stopping by my porch! I hope you were blessed by the visit! I welcome and appreciate, if thought you care to speak; the value and the input of compliment or critique
