All These Many Years

All these many years
Count them…
Not just our fears
The blessings and joys too!
And count the many cheers…
For all that we have
For all that we’ve become
For all that we have had to overcome
All the many years!

All these many years
Remember them…
For what they did
And for all that was done…
Those who we have known
Those who we have learned from
Those who we have loved and missed
All these many years!

All these many years
So many changes…
Have been our own challenges
For all of us who are still here
Still living… Still carry on knowing…
There is still so much to be done
There is still so much we need to be in prayer for
There is still so much for us to live for
All these many years!

All these many years
Never forget…
To keep in our minds and hearts
For our own good
The sacred things that are important to us…
Hold on to our father’s faith
Hold on to our mother’s families
Hold on to the God who always promised to keep us
All these many years!
