In our golden days of childhood We learned about God's grace Seven brothers and sisters With long, hard lives to face Growing up was a struggle Our faith helped to make us strong Mother and Daddy worked so hard To teach us right from wrong They've long since left this Earthly realm For a place where angels dwell We're all growing tired and weary Soon we, too, will bid farewell As my eyes survey the wonder I have neither fear nor dread I stand at the door of fulfillment Looking back o'er the life I've led Now in my twilight years I see The winding path to that golden stair And if I cross before you do I'll wait for you up there Kathleen McCoy EldridgeŠ March 31, 2006 All Rights Reserved
