As You Grow Up

As you grow up
You start your circle of life
It begins when you get married
And become husband and wife
Then you have children
Of whom you are proud of
You raise them the best you can
And give them all your love
Then the grandchildren come along
And you love them as your own
You cannot wait to see them
When they come visit you at home
They give life a new meaning
One more thing to live for
But they can also pull that plug
Making life meaningless once more
