Growing Old

When yesterday was the here and now
It never crossed my mind that one day
I would be setting here wondering "how?"
How could all the things I thought would last
slip away so very fast?

When yesterday was the here and now
I never pictured me in gray hair
Never thought much about growing old
Lived my life without a care.....
I did the things a wife should do
for the man who made all my dreams come true,
I did the things I thought a mother was made for
Loved and took care of the children I adore.
I believed that good always comes out on top
And had a faith in God that just would not stop

When yesterday was the here and now
It never crossed my mind that one day
I would be setting here wondering "how?"
How could all the things I thought would last
slip away so very fast?

When yesterday was the here and now
It never crossed my mind that all the things
That brought me so much laughter and joy
would in memory fill me with tears,
And all those I love so dear
would in the years spread their wings
and disappear.

When yesterday was the here and now
And my faith was tested time and time again
It never dawned on me that
Life's greatest test would come near the end.
That the day would come(that I am now in)
I would find the answers I seek
Not in the part of me growing old
But in the deepest part of my soul.
