Time is quickly changing
and I am noticeably aging.
I step back to recall
my memories of it all.
Many dreams in childhood I told
of love, success and lots of gold.
The reality of adulthood so thorny spiked
revealed many a result certainly not liked.
Keeping my heart true and will strong
my true love did happen along.
Many trials remained but visions held
pieces of dreams began to weld.
College success at last I found
as I kept my feet on solid ground.
Soon was terrible loss and said maybe
Then blessed with a beautiful boy baby
blinked again and had number two was pretty pink and not blue.
So now soulfully complete and satisfied
for all the setbacks and many tears cried.
My heart has so much to hold
that far surpasses success or gold.
Now I look forward with little fear
as I celebrate another year.
Looking at my dreams come true
and do so wish the same for you!
