Regardless

byButterflies512©

Regardless of what the future holds
Growing fat and growing old
Laughs and tears and years and years
Achievements and glories
Distress and disease
Poopy diapers and tiny skinned knees
Regardless of pain and sorrow
Regardless of today or tomorrow
Apart, together, forgotten, remembered
A truth inside begins to grow
Planted in a nice straight row
A gift you've given
Worth more than words
More than music
Or fresh cheese curds
Awake, alive, alert and free
You've given me a better me
