Don’t Count the Years

by: Garnett Ann Schultz

Don’t count the years – they matter not,

Count only the dreams

that the years have brought,

The happiness and the faith so dear,

The moments rich

you have treasured here..

Don’t count the years – only the smiles

Or the peace you have known

on the weary miles,

The laughter you’ve shared

and the friends you’ve made,

Each magic hope

that shall never fade.

Years are but numbers – ‘tis living that counts,

A heart that knows joy --

small or large amounts,

A mind filled with loving --

eliminates fears,

Count every blessing --

never the years.
