Change is a series of unstoppable moments
It is a period where everything may not always be in focus
You never know when it will happen, it isn’t planned
Some of those times won’t be good; at others change will be grand!
Changing from a baby to a toddler, taking your first steps
And you say your first word, wondering what else is next!
You become bigger, and start school
And soon learn that being older and going to school isn’t that cool!
You go through primary school, learning all the way
But this place is not where you will stay
You move onto secondary school, which is much harder
From that moment you wish you were back in nursery, still a starter!
Then you go to university, study hard and then graduate
And get a job, an experience that may or may not be great!
You grow into a young adult and learn different things about life
And when the time is right, you may become a husband or wife!
You will have your own kids and see them grow
And hope they will do well in life, knowing everything they need to know
They later on have kids and you become a grandparent, even maybe a great grandparent
And when you go, you will watch them from Heaven!
