As we grow throughout our life
We change what we feel must be done
There are things that lose meaning
Even though at one time they were fun.
As we grow we tend to change our focus
Moving from the things of our youth
We tend to grow older even if not wiser
Some things force us into the truth.
As we grow we find new priorities in life
We find we can focus more on important issues
As we seek and find, live and learn, even love
There will be time for laughter, at time tissues.
As we grow we hope to leave a legacy
One that we can be proud to have shared
We hope that others will let us know
That with us, and for us, they have cared.
