A Woman’s Life

A woman's life has just begun
When she finally reaches 21
Wine and song and shoes to die
Career and men, she's 25
Pitter, patter and the dishes dirty
Mommy, Daddy, rat race at 30
Learning and living, she feels so alive
Questioning everything at 35
Wisdom, teaching, reflection, oh Lordy
Teenagers driving and wrinkles at 40
Growing and happy, proud of her life
She knows who she is now, at 45
Kids off to college, time to be thrifty
Thanking God everyday she made it to 50
Her parents are aging, decisions of life
Planning and waiting, she turns 55
Grandkids are here, she wipes off the sticky
Loving her life now, retired at 60
Pottery, art class and naptime at noon
She looks back and smiles, so much more to do.

Kathryn A. Hamilton - Nov. 2014
