Dr. Ronnie Wolfe — August 30, 2017
Funeral of Marshall Baker (9-1-2017)
Traveling through life as time goes by,
We think not much of the passing sky,
That it is not the same each day
But changes on life’s lingering way.
The child looks out to brighter days
To be brought out of youthful haze,
To reach for more enduring things,
To catch our dreams with soaring wings.
But time slows down as it presses on
To change our minds with sorrow’s song,
And reaching out to some good friend,
We find our grasp in rushing wind,
Then see at last the final day
When life and time are gone away
And our lives here mean little more
Than a memory on a forgotten shore.
They all remember life’s short span
When to death the moments ran
And never ceased to hurry forth
To measure there life’s little worth.
So short, and yet in memories stored
Our minds remember love’s strong cord
And weave together family ties
And know just where the secret lies.
