I was reading the Book of Matthew in the Bible last night and I reread a poem that my sister Chris had written on her birthday, April 28, 1990. She sent this to me by mail and I have kept it for over 20 years and I reread it from time to time. She titled her poem ‘Life.' ’ Chris died in April 2000
The years go by so fast,
I’m always looking for something better.
I’m getting older every day,
Still wondering will the good things
and easier times come my way.
The ones I saw but didn’t see,
Somehow I don’t think they will ever be.
They seem so close and so near,
So I’ll try, and try again.
To no avail I think of all the wasted years…
All of the laughs, and all of the tears.
But life must go on,
So on I went.
Yesterday, I was young and strong.
Tomorrow I will be old and bent.
~~ Chris ~~ April 28, 1990
