Young by Jane Ayers Sweat


They were young once
With eyes of brightest blue
Legs that ran so fast
And bones that quickly grew.

He was young once
Took off for college life
Met a sweet girl
And made her his wife.

She was young once
Had their babies with ease
Loved them all beyond words
And worked hard to please.

They were young once
When the kids left home
They all flew away
To start lives of their own.

Their hair is gray now
Bodies are old
Bones are so brittle
And the house is so cold.

Won't you come by
to visit now and then?
Their minds are still alive
Like way back when.

They were young once.
