My Freedom

Watching the leaves in the treesFall Leaves
As they come falling down
Turning from green to brown
Every moment now I must seize.

Life holds so much more today
Than any point in life
Lot’s to do past midlife
Allow me more, my Lord I pray.

The air is now cool
The fall of life is here
Everything is now held dear
I’ll no longer play the fool.

I gave my all in my early days
But when I gave all I had
I watched as it all went bad
No emotion left, I was in a daze

Left empty, with no feeling
I had come to the end of my rope
No longer having any hope
It all left me reeling


Golden years come with wisdom
and something like a crystal ball
It’s really experience that’s all
I know now I have my freedom.

About Jim

I'm a 72 yr old guy, who had worked in Naval Hospital Camp Lejeune for 28 yrs and now retired as of 31 Dec 16. I've worked in medical records, Health Benefits Department, Billing, the IT department and retired as the Personnel Security Manager for the hospital. I'm a musician and Corvette enthusiast. Yes, I have had two. I traded my second Corvette for a Harley Davidson Fat Boy mid-summer 2019. I've already ridden about seven thousand miles. I'm also searching for a fresh new outlook on life with new spiritual insight among other things. I was ordained a minister on 20190202. I've become certified with the American Chaplaincy Association through Aidan University in June '21. I've found that with the unconditional love of my companion, Libby Rowe life is complete through God. She's a beautiful, vibrant, giving woman who gives her all in everything she puts her mind to do. She and I married on 24 July 2015. She was ordained in February 2022. She has a blog too called Under a Carolina Moon. Give it a visit.
