Double forty and what do you get
The age you are turning, but don't be upset
There are many who never see this age
Life moves on it is just a different stage
A time to share the wisdom you have gained
Be proud of the age you have attained.
So, celebrate this special day
Have a happy birthday!

80 years old, this poem could be used for any person growing older
who may be experiencing all that comes with an aging body, yet still full of life.
His Eightieth Birthday
Poet: Mrs. C. K. Smith
I note the silver halo
About the dear one's head,
I note the voice so mellow
In all that he has said.
His ripened visage tells me
He has not lived in vain,
However strong the ills be,
He never does complain!
Though physically aged.
His spirit always young,
He leaves no things engaged in
With head, or hand, or tongue,
He's growing old gracefully
No, no, he is not old
He stands upright as ever
And walks as straight and bold.
The cheerful never do grow old.
They only seem more ripe;
This is a tale that is twice told.
But never old or trite!
