Looking Forward, Looking Back

While out and about at shops and such
We see the strength of younger men
And wonder, as they walk away
How will they look, later then

Will their shouders stoop, depleted
Their hair be gone, all wispy grey
With years decreasing power of limb
How will they face each day

And are they preparing now
Their hearts, their minds for heaven
Filling up each day with love
To enjoy the other end

And thus, we gaze on aged men
Reposed, retired, upon a seat
Wondering what handsome looks they bore
And if they feel complete

Their past now tucked away, a mystery
The years of fight and grit
Achieving such of this and that
While they were young and fit

But, the heart of man is still the same
Inside, he's young, in love
Oh Lord, I pray he knows your life
So, renewed, he'll walk with You above

Soft forever whispers from
