December with Lifesprk
a poem by Kristin Cramer

It ends with a spark

Is this month’s theme

The anniversary may end

But never the dream

 

Our dream to spark lives

Will continue each year

For our seniors and their happiness

Which we hold very dear

 

So let’s not look at this as an end

But the start to so much more

And after we spark 5,000,000 lives

A new goal we will explore

 

Our goal can be large

Because when we work as a team

We can tell all the seniors

That they can start to dream

 

Dream of their favorites

Places, foods, and much more

Dream of their hobbies and interests

From either now or before

 

For seniors are our passion

And their families are too

Someday not too far off

That will be me and you

 

So let’s take the time

And the effort to show we care

And help them discover their passion

Let’s help them to share

 

Share their memories, their talents

Their smiles and much more

They have so much to offer

So much to adore

If it weren’t for our seniors

We wouldn’t have what we do

They worked hard all their lives

And endured so much too

 

So it’s time to give back

To all the seniors we see

So many wishes to uncover

They need you and me

 

Help to discover their purpose in life

And their passions and much more

Hearts filled with joy and happiness

Is what will be in store

 

Shine on, dream on,

Discover on too

This all can be done

By me and by you

 

So let’s get started team

There’s no time better in sight

Happy Anniversary to all

And to all a good night
