Milestones

As we all grow up there are many milestones that we encounter especially when it comes to Birthdays.  This poem discusses our birthday milestones and common themes associated to our different ages.

Birthdays at any age are meant to be engaged,
But the first birthday we celebrate is certainly great.
Our second until nine is fun for everyone,
Double digits changes things, so many things it brings.

Thirteen begins our teenage years, an exciting yet terrifying time.
Sweet 16 is something sweet, so many friends to greet.
Finally an adult at eighteen,
Ready to leave behind your teens.

A birthday at twenty is worth a whole lot plenty,
But twenty-one sets the stage, a milestone of an age.
Twenty-five through thirty-five, toasts can be very wordy,
Forty and forty-five, almost at fifty.

Looking forward to retirement at sixty and sixty-five,
Seventy through to 90,
Blessed to still be alive.
One hundred, very accomplished.

So much seen and done,
This party cannot be overdone.
No matter the age, no matter the time,
You only get them once in a lifetime.
