Reflections of My Life

DE24BC76-34D7-4AD6-AB49-E2963E018C2C

Will I, when faced with life’s review,

be content to watch my passage?

Will I be proud, ashamed

to see my name

on that eternal movie screen?

Life, indeed a stage, and each must

play a role with no script in hand.

Do we follow our cues

for the paths we choose

or boldly improvise?

I hope with constant vigilance

to owe such little recompense

that I may revel in the rest

as I lay aside my script

with its pages worn and ripped

to bask in brilliant Light

in sweet repose.

I shall return the key

until it’s time for me

to succumb to the seduction

of another huge production

that will give me second chances

and with no backward glances,

find new glory in the spotlight-

Center stage.

This song was a favorite of mine in Jr High School. I still love it though it is almost never played in oldies venues.
Love and Light and happy #Free48 to everyone!
