The Winter of Life by Tom Chapman

 

Should I dread this last season of my life
As a flower of the field so I flourished,
Yet the time is coming of no more strife
When the wind passes over and I won't need nourished.

I remember the Spring, the Summer and the Fall
When it seemed I would live forever and a day,
But when Winter came I began to hear the call
And I know it won't always be this way.

Life is a vapor from beginning to end
These thoughts will pierce you like a knife,
Was it your parents, or children, a brother or a friend,
Who did you love in your precious life?

I know that I was blessed more than most men
With a long life He satisfied me,
Was it the Father, the Son or the Holy Ghost
I think in fact it was surely all three.

It's all so weird when winter starts its season
I think old man winter and the reaper are friends,
It doesn't matter what you have or even good reason
There is only One on whom you can depend.

He is beautiful and lovely and like a perfect rose
Who waits for me there while I am still here,
He is mysterious and powerful and everything He knows
Will I fall at His feet or jump up and cheer?

Will it be soon like my brother who is no longer here
Or will I be ninety or ninety two,
I hope most of all I won't have fear
And I hope even more that you won't fear too.

Every day on the earth is a gift to remember
So cherish it dearly because here it does end,
But for those of us who trust and surrender
Eternity is waiting and from here we ascend.
