Poetry Friday

Found a poem that amazed me today as I was reading a newsletter sent to my husband and I. The poem was written by a 12 year old boy named Jason Meyer. It touched me and I wanted to share it with you.


Chapters

My life is a book,
Each chapter unfolding as I go.
The chapters each give an outlook.


In the first chapter I cry over a lost toy,
the next chapter I am filled with joy,
I 'm making a friend the next,
And the friend leaves after a few more.
Even after losing a friend, I'm never alone.
For thou art always with me.
The one who plays a big part.

I have been taught many things,
But there is one I will never forget.
There is always someone there for me.
Whether my parents are gone or they are there.
God and them both will always be there for me.

This is all a conclusion
To one part of my life and beginning to another.
When some thing new starts a new chapter begins.
Each lesson is a paragraph and when this life is over,
I will have a cover and a title.

Jason Meyer, 12 years old
