    So who cares about what has been done
    As long as birthdays keep having fun!

  11. As I Grow Old
    Poet:  Unknown

    God keep my heart attuned to laughter,
    When youth is done;
    When all the days are gray days,
    Coming after the warmth, the sun.
    God keep me then from bitterness, from grieving,
    When life seems cold;
    God keep me always loving and believing,
    As I grow old.

  12. Let Me Grow Lovely
    Poet: Karle Wilson Baker

    Let me grow lovely, growing old
    So many fine things do:
    Laces, and ivory, and gold,
    And silks need not be new;
    And there is healing in old trees,
    Old streets a glamour hold;
    Why may not I, as well as these,
    Grow lovely, growing old?

  13. I Remember
    Poet: Thomas Hood

    I remember, I remember
    The roses, red and white,
    The violets, and the lily-cups,
    Those flowers made of light!
    The lilacs, where the robin built,
    And where my brother set
    The laburnum  on his birthday,-
    The tree is living yet.

  14. Birthdays at any age are meant to be engaged

  15. Age
    Poet: Julie Hebert

    What is age, but something to count?

    And offer a drink, to all in this place.

  16. Wiser With Age
    Poet: B. R. Clement

    Now they say you are wiser with age
    The years pass and you go through a stage
    Wow, then you must be some wise
    Your age is truly a surprise
    You try to say you're younger that is true
    But knowing your age, you deserve your dues.
    Life stages you have seen many come and go
    And look at you it does not show.

  21. Laughter And Happiness
    Poet: Tom S. Gold

    You might as well smile, or else you could cry
    You can be down or you can be high
    You can slow down or be just as driven
    You see age is just a number given
    On this birthday we wish for you
    Laughter, happiness not down and blue.
