Seems odd that already a half century has gone by. Still, this does not depress me. I’ve been engaged enough in self-awareness exercises during the past several years to realize that my life is, in fact, just beginning.
I still have dreams and things I’d like to accomplish.
Sometimes I wonder, “Am I too old?”
Age is more than a number. It’s everything behind it that has made me who I am.
So it is with gratitude and a burning desire to fulfill my measure here on Earth that I continue boldly along the path of my life.
Thank you for being a part of my journey …
Stand I now by Milestone Fifty.
Could be nasty; could be nifty.
Could depress me; make me cry.
Could hang my head with a heavy sigh.
Could devour my tender heart,
Yet that’s not how I wish to start
The waning years that fly so fast,
Engage, I must, to the very last
Inspired breath I dare to take
And gasp I give, for goodness sake.
For age is more than just a number
Can give us strength and fill with wonder.
Clouds with silver lining weep
For those who to their golden years creep.
