Seasons of Life

Everything has its reason,
Because it all has its season;
Some are weary from their labor,
Burdens carried for their neighbor.

Some of us have been so weighed down,
We do not notice we wear a frown;
A frown that says something is wrong,
Leaving agony to prolong.

So beautiful how God has done,
We can give signs when lost or won;
A sign showing the time is right,
A sign for a wrong time it might.

A sign to mourn a sign to tear,
A sign showing something to fear;
A sign for love and for just friends,
And a sign for when it all ends.

We do not know the sign for when,
The end of this life we live then;
So we live as each day goes by,
And no reason to wonder why.

It is not our time to know,
When or where we should have to go;
With a sense of eternity,
In not knowing mortality.

A gift from God to eat and drink,
And giving us a time to think;
About all the joy and sorrow,
That gives us hope for tomorrow.

If we believe no need to fear,
If tomorrow is far or near;
Because you will not be alone
Fear not when you approach the throne.

Whatever occurs in the past,
Those memories will ever last;
And whatever the future brings,
Will be up to the King of kings.
