From The Edge of Time

“Dance me to the children who are asking to be born,
Dance me to the curtains that our kisses have outworn,
…Dance me to the end of love.” – Leonard Cohen

From sepia tone pictures,
To the rooms we enter now,
From windows through the past,
They reach and teach us how,
Their eyes and smiles see us,
While steadfast love frees us,
To life alive unfettered.

Relationships with aging,
All along the years,
Hearts forever youthful,
Through laughter and tears,
Just sit and lend an ear,
Be patient and do hear,
How life is made better.

Age can frail the bodies,
Once so strong and whole,
Yet wisdom runs forever,
On life within our roles,
Never doubting life’s meaning,
Truth from God’s mind gleaning,
In the following of love.

Youth will find true purpose,
In wisdom and in faith,
In sharing smiles with elders,
A joy nothing can replace,
See the hours pass like minutes,
Defying life illusion limits,
With God smiling from above.
