Whether we complain or not
The snow will return each year
If we complain
We just create bad vibes and unhappiness
One has to learn to live with the cold and snow of winter
We all go through it together
Experiencing the challenges
And everyday that passes
We are one day closer to spring
I may change my mind in February
But for now I’ll remain optimistic

The trees have spread their fall carpet under them
They are inviting us to sit with them for a while
Look at the beauty of nature and
The amazing colors, a feast for the eyes
They say let’s look back at the summer
What did you enjoy?
What was hard?
They say let’s look ahead to winter
The season of hibernation
We can still do a lot in those cold months
They say let’s think about right now
The blessings we have
How far we’ve come And then they thank us for visiting them
And staying for a while

Is eternity too long to live
After we leave this world?
Will we get bored?
What are we going to do with all that time?
Eternity is very long
Will we have things to do, places to go, things to see?
They say we will be spirits
But what does that mean?
Why all this secrecy about life after we die?
There must be a wisdom in it
That we’ll only then find out
