    [h=1]As I sit herethinking
    having just reachedthe sixty mark
    an awful lot hashappened in that time
    these times havebeen both light and dark[/h]
    It seems justyesterday that I left school
    and now I amenjoying retirement
    so many memories tolook back upon
    much filled withlove and sentiment

    Having loved andgrieved in that time
    now have loved myChristine so love came again
    have battled withstammer all of life
    trying every methodto make words blend

    Music has alwaysbeen a favourite art
    especially love forclassical was great
    loved the movies andnature too
    recent love ofpoetry writes and read till late

    The biggest changewas 30 years past
    when God in Christ Idid meet
    giving me a newfound love
    to fall unreservedlyat His feet

    Jesus was now mygreatest love
    being crucified on Golgotha’s hill
    for my sins His lifeHe gave
    so my soul now knewbe still

    I began life anadopted child
    God in Hisprovidence took good care
    always holding me inHis hands
    together now we walkas a pair
