Poem about growing older

by Rosemary DiFlorio
(Mississauga, ON Canada)

Life is Eternity

I know I’m growing older,
I know I’m not as strong,
But through the years that I have aged,
I have learned what is right and wrong.

I may not be so quick,
There are times I feel so sick,
But I know that doesn’t mean a thing,
Cause I never miss a trick.

I know that wine gets better,
The older it gets,
So I just age and mellow,
Without feeling much regret.

I cannot waste the days,
Fearing what the future brings,
Because I know that someone loves me,
His Name is Christ the King.

Poem About Longevity

by Terry A. Shuman
(Medina, Ohio U.S.A.)


While still a young man, so carefree,
I made to God one simple plea:
Please bless me with longevity.

Yet, what instead, He gave to me
Was the loving opportunity
To live my life....eternally.

Short and sweet. I love the fact we don't know where it is going to go on the subject.

Poem About Innocence

by Michael Wrenn
(Charleston, MS)

The Great and the Small

Why should I be this amazed
And taken aback by youth?
I’ve always believed
The smallest thing
Reflects the largest truth –

It’s just that it strikes me
As being very odd
That now,
After all these years,
The thing which moves me most
To tears
Is when my little niece –
Innocent, trusting, and kind,
Not burdened
By the world’s woe,
Not knowing
Of the world’s wrong –
Out of a simple act of love,
Brings to me
A carefully chosen flower
Which she has picked
Especially for me.

Oh, dear God above!
Would that our faith
Were half so strong!
Would that our eyes
Could be so blind!

How can I resist...
“Jesus said, “Let the little children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to such as these.”” (Matthew 19, NIV Bible)

Dear Michael, Thank you so much. I relate very much to the sentiment.

"One thing that struck me was the stripping of ego in the work. Most of us have a comfy ego façade, but weakness and disease tore Katherine’s away. The poems in Be Loved Beloved come from the heart."
