I am grateful for your constant and steady companionship.
I have not always felt that way about your many many visits, but as time goes by I’m growing to value them.
When you visit regularly, I sometimes wish you away, but you know that I really do not mean it.
You bring me joy and sorrow, rude shocks and pleasant surprises.
I would not have known the joy, if you had not brought me sorrow,
I would not have known I was strong if you had not shaken me up,
I would not have known accomplishment, if i did not accept the struggles you gave me,
Through it all, you gave me hope.
I am never alone, because you hold on to me,
I remember not to be complacent, because you slap me in the face
I am sometimes wise, and welcome you with open arms,
I sometimes forget that wisdom and just want a break
I know you are good for me, as you make me grow,
I have learned over time to accept you as you are and go with the flow
I appreciate your constancy and I’m not asking you to be any different from what you are.
But would it be so hard, to just give me a call now and then, and let me know you’re on your way to see me?

‘Dear Change’ is about the beginning of the journey – the struggle we all experience when life takes us in hand. And ‘Make hay when the sun shines bright’ is about sunshine and happiness – a result of the wisdom that we gain after we struggle.
Thanks you for reading, and I hope you can check it out after you read ‘Dear Change’.
