The following is Opal’s favorite verse she wished to share: 


Life’s Long Road

I at times yearn

For the youth I once had

When troubles were few

And my heart mostly glad.

For youth is a world

When the hearts full and free,

In the days childhoods magic

Would beckon me.

But, now, in today

There’s a kind of a peace,

And the long path behind

Has given release

And on life’s long road

I have given my best

And with a light load

God has given me rest.

For there’s a time of our youth

There’s a time to grow old,

A time to look back

And such a peace to behold.
