Empty Pages

Life begins much like an empty book

Pages waiting as a tranquil brook


How will daily life compose each page?

Breathtaking words at every age


Words starting with childlike, joyful prose

Sentences fill with love, head to toes


Paragraphs arrive, smiling each day

First page finishes, much like crochet


Chapters now gather, picking up speed

Transmission accepts each tender reed


Pages adding up, never afraid

Days, weeks, months, years gather . . . no charade


Life reaches the twilight of its time

Not pausing, not even for halftime


Who will ever read this manuscript?

There’s time to add a final postscript


With empty pages, life’s book began

Words maturing, always in God’s plan
