Life's Story

Birthed to breathe their sentiment
Inhaled, exhaled in womb content
Comfort short lived as time exposed
A new being to quickly grow

Proving grounds made up playground
Here first steps became leaps and bounds
For harder times and times breezed through
Made for being these chapters too

Love became true and constant
Sheltered in arms from life's laments
But soon this place of refuge left
As parents passed as life met death

Though loss was felt, lessons were learned
To deal with paths and too discern
Right from wrong, Love from hate
How much to give or lose of trait
Passion grew as they became
Much as parents who shared their pain
As childhood left and came to pass
To bare such gifts, ones own amassed

And so today when bedtime comes
The role now theirs has now become
A story told shared through the ages
Of time but once, treasured thought pages
