We are weathered in our souls
Lines of experience etched into every corner
As we watch over our loved ones
Carry our spirits along the fate’s path
Within a single moment,
A flash of expression
Can tell a story more profound than
One hundred well written pages of a favorite novel.
We are tempered in our spirits
Adjusted to a life long and fulfilled.
Memories carrying us through
To the other side of possibility.
Here in this life I find
The evidence of a trust so
Deep and full of faith
That I find myself in awe.
Believe in the weathered soul
For there is a lesson in life before you.
Learn from the tempered spirit
For there is a beauty of peace awaiting you.
Trust in yourself,
For there is a world of wonder within you.
