Sunset Of His Years

Poem By Marilyn Lott

His precious little child
Many years ago
A father smiles in pride
He loves that baby so

Isn’t it amazing
How life slowly begins
And how time flies by so fast
Heads toward the end?

But in between those years
A child becomes a man
Raises a wonderful family
To grow on his red dirt land

Another generation
Behind him then will grow
He has raised his family well
The time came to let them go

And so then he's in
The sunset of his years
Many amazing sunsets
Through happiness and tears

He takes the time to treasure
The sunrise when the day begins
And enjoys each hour till sunset
Through the camera lens!

The world is wide with wonder
For everything is new
A child’s mind is like a sponge
Or like a flower sipping morning dew

Three ducks pecked around
In a garden one warm day
They wore beautiful coats
Of white feathers to display

He works so hard every day
Doing pretty much what he’s told
The days slowly turn into years
As his life carefully unfolds

Sometimes I kind of feel sad and bored
So I decide to have a little chat with the Lord

I know He understands and He will see

He has risen to fame

A Bologna Sandwich?

I love a hamburger that is cooked just right
Sliced tomato, onion and a pickle too
A sandwich of chicken or turkey is nice
So many choices that we can pursue
