In the Autumn of My Life

my youth is spent
the winds of time have blown away the years
yet, here in the Autumn of my life,
I find great joy in the slower pace of my days.
the kids are grown
the workload lighter
more time to draw closer to Jesus
to know Him
really know Him
a deeper understanding
of what's permanent
and what's temporary
I had it all wrong before
it's what's unseen that matters
what can't be proven that rings truest
what's done in love that lasts
I'll spend my life on those things
for I am a vapor that that appears
for a little while
and then vanishes
but the people I touch
will be my lasting legacy
