Learn

As we live we grow

As we grow we learn

The greatest things

We learn which causes change

 

There are powerful things

That causes pain

Things that causes us

To remember

 

The ring of a mother

Who lost the battle

Of a lifetime

 

The picture of a man

Whose life went out

Right before Christmas

 

We learn about loss

 

There are powerful things

That remind us

That we have to go on

For ourselves and others

 

A warm smile

That makes you glow

From inside out

 

A ring around your finger

Tying you together

As your heart glows

 

We learn about love

 

These are the things

That shape us.
