Life’s Twilight Years
Entering into life’s twilight years
Does not mean a sorrowful ending.
It can be the beginning of peace
And acceptance of all life’s learning
That has brought one to this time and age,
And made us who we now are today.
Let not the gloaming be a night light,
Which fades along with the morning dew,
Let it be a beacon of joyous
Gratitude for waking to the dawn,
Another dawn of hope and the chance
To give and receive a day of love.
For, it is love that is the life of life,
The very core of peace and harmony.
Let the sun set on love and rise on love,
To guide you through another day of joy.
Enjoy each moment, each day of life.
Embrace and cherish those whom you love.
Let nature show you the way in life
Of peace and balance, love so divine.
Let love and light shine upon others,
And reflect back to your heart and soul.
Be all you can be in this moment
Of time, let each day be a time to love.
