07/07/2010 - Another Decade Will Have Gone By

                              Next Week When I Turn Fifty


Next week when I turn fifty,
I'll be ten years older than the day before.

I'll be way smarter, seasoned and witty.
I'll be greatly matured and a whole lot more.

I'll be loved for the content of my mind.
I'll be cherished, looked up to and adored.

I'll be sweeter, nicer and oh so kind,
I'll be a gentler, calmer, child of the Lord. 

I'll be more realistic and embracing of what life has to offer me.
I'll be smiling in the face of any defeat and never keep my score.

I'll be willing to accept that if all these things, I find that I cannot be,
I'll be just fine with being the person who I was the day before.
