It won’t be my birthday for another month yet.  I was thinking about it though.

Here is my poem.


Turning 60, or is it 59.

There is a birthday and I think it’s mine.

I’ll celebrate, party, have a great time.

Don’t send condolences in a letter.

I like my age, every year gets better!

Glad not return behind the ears wetter.

Of advantages I can think of three.

Anywhere, with confidence, wander free

Nothing, any more, seems to bother me.

Faces or names, never could remember.

Of an excused group I am now member.

Doused, my memory, a burning ember.

No longer must I work 40 hours.

I have a choice, read, relax, tend flowers,

Or see the world.  This freedom empowers.

When it is my birthday, I shall opine

This day is not dark, I am feeling fine.

Let’s celebrate, party, have a great time.
