Forever Young


This cage of wants and hopes and dreams will age, as wear and tear
Will take its toll where aches and pains will make us more aware
Of what has always been this way; time’s play of groan and grin
Will scrawl its telling empathy on/in envelopes of skin

The best and worst of blessed and cursed will keep no form intact
Time’s sleight of hand adept at disclosing matters of fact
Yet cannot touch the much more meaningful and precious part
Where love and thankfulness can keep us ever young at heart

For the Lord is good and his love endures forever;
    his faithfulness continues through all generations.
