THE SEED
 
THE SEED

When I think of ‘Life’
I see it as a seed,
Not one of ‘want’
But one of ‘need’.
We must nurture each
And value its worth
For life grows on
In each moment’s birth.
Life reigns over all
And we must believe
That life grows on
In all we receive.
I then think of the seasons
Of both nature and life.
How it grows on
Even in storms and strife.
Spring brings its renewal of green
And life grows on in each day seen.
Summer brings its playful glee
Of the sun at play.
And autumn, sweet autumn,
With its changing display
Just as our life grows on
In changing colors bold
Of new stories told.
And then comes winter of chilled winds
And thoughts of where life has been.
Soon we will reach the end of our time
But life grows on
In the legacy we leave behind...

Yes, life grows on as new seeds...
Not of ‘want’ but of ‘need’.
