The Circle Completes

Oh my Little Love
Take my arm and guide me
as you did Grandma so long ago
For the time has come when
I need your love and acceptance
of what our futures hold

We cannot escape it no matter
how we try
But we cannot accept it
or we will surely die

Just as Autumn’s leaves fall
from the trees
Our parting time approaches

Do not mourn what is to come
for it cannot be changed
Just honor and cherish the
remaining time for it will
ease your sorrow
And someday your arm will
be enfolded like you did
mine and Grandma’s
And Life’s Circle will be
