The Golden Years


The Golden Years


Are we looking ahead

to the golden years?

What are they


Are they leisure days

for soaking up

the suns rays?

Is it when we take the time

to notice the little things?

Or when we start a big project

that makes our hearts sing?

Whatever they are

Whenever they be

I want to be doing

these things already

Time has a way

of slipping out

from under us

And it seems like

we end up

going backwards

when we’re rushed

I do want to win…

I don’t want to be caught

with coins

still buried

not invested

When the real golden years begin

I want to walk

those golden streets

without bearing shame

that I hid all my talent

waiting for the right


in the game

It’s not a golden trophy

that makes me want to run

It’s words

from my Master

that tell me

Well done!

Now those will be

The Golden Years!

This was the last of our Japanese Maples to lose all of its leaves.  It is also the most golden.

“His master replied, ‘Well done, good and faithful servant!  You have been faithful with a few things; I will put you in charge of many things. Come and share your master’s happiness!’…”  Matthew 25:21
