40-Something

Written by Lisa DeVinney on . Posted in poetry

I’m losing my eyesight, and losing my hair;
I’m losing my mind; it’s all gone – who knows where.
And then I am gaining things I’d rather not;
Such as age spots, and wrinkles, and weight…who’d have thought!
 
Thank goodness there’s something that’s always the same;
It’s my Savior and friend; Jesus Christ is His name!
In this world of uncertainty, I’m glad to know
I have someone like Him, to whom I can still go.
 
Doesn’t matter what stage of life I’m going through,
He is always the same; His Word says that it’s true.
So I’ll just hang on for this ride we call life;
And will try not to stress ‘bout the changes in sight.
 
But I’ll focus, instead, on my Heavenly Friend,
Who’s as constant and true, as He always has been.
 
 
"Jesus Christ is the same yesterday, today, and forever."
Hebrews 13:8 NKJV
