Seasons of My Life

In the Springtime there were butterflies
And daisies by the score
A barefoot girl running through the yard
Playing hopscotch, jacks, and more


The endless days of Summer
Were woven with countless dreams
The starry nights and blazing fires
By a rushing mountain stream


When Autumn's golden abundance
Filled my heart with awe
The harvest of a happy heart
Was my reward for all I saw


Then Winter winds blew fiercely
I shut the windows tight
And quietly enjoyed the peace
Of a hearth warmed cozy night


I view things from a distance now
That so many seasons bring
Of love and loss and happiness
And find my memories have wings


I can fly above the heartaches
And hold happy times so near
The seasons live within my soul
No matter the time of year

Karen Shaw Matteson

Write it on your heart that every day
is the best day of the year.
