Oh the innocence of youth with health and vitality
So many things we take for granted as we grow
We eat, sleep, go about our days without a care
Most oblivious to a parents worry, this I know.
I was reminded of things the young take for granted
With the passing of a dear friend just this week
His fight with diabetes, heart, effects of his age
Made me think yet again of what it is that we seek.
Each of us wants to find that which makes happy
No one can know all the thoughts of our heart
But there are those that can make such a connection
Seems they could finish our sentence, before we start.
As we grow older, which doesn’t mean that we grow up
We realize our priority in life often changes too
May be always find reasons to want to continue to live
And may we find that soul that will share as we do.
