out my window
a lovely world I can see.
green grass, a bubbling brook
a forest of tall, majestic trees.
gaze at the future,
see memories from the past.
children playing, farmers haying,
sunshine and long shadows cast.
through life's window
reveals many things -
happiness and gladness, pain and sadness -
the window endures whatever life brings.
my window, blue sky or gray,
the picture is constantly changing.
I watch with interest day after day
as life continues its rearranging.
out my window,
hoping that I will see.
the beauty of a life well lived,
as the curtain of life's window draws shut for me.
