Come and Go


As you go through your life you’ll find
most things will come and go
like the weather of the seasons
the heat, the rain, and snow


The way the children you may raise
no matter what you say
will please and disappoint you
as they grow, and move away


A job to work, a place to live
all things in life go past
and life turns into memories
as years go by too fast


The moments turn to hours and days
and weeks, to months and years
but life with you brings love and joy
where once was only fears


And so, my dear, as time goes past
I’d like for you to know
that I will always love you
though things may come and go.

    So well said and executed in form of words- the truth of life.

    I think love is the one exception to “nothing lasts forever.” This is so beautiful! 😍

  4. Vintage Brad. Though things may come and go, this poem of yours is holding up year in and year out.

    While some things will always change, others remain the same. By the way, I like the larger print.

      As this was one of my earlier poems, before WP changed the posting formats, I cannot remember how I pulled the larger print off. Maybe someday I will figure out the new posting methods. Thank you, Pete!

        Makes me curious how long you’ve been at this? The idea of writing something meaningful each day has to be a challenge. Maybe you need to knock off Borden’s blogging record to bring him out of retirement.🤣

        I’ve got to imagine you still enjoy it if you’re here. As I always tell my wife, if it ever starts feeling like work, I’m outta here.

        It is all Jim’s fault. After starting to follow him and Beth, I felt the need to post daily. Since then, I have not been able to keep up with an original work every day, but luckily, I have so much that I can slide in some older ones when I need a break. Couldn’t do it without the support of friends like you, Pete!
