The years go flying by so fast
We wonder why our youth does not last
But when I look at you I see
A younger version of what you use to be
But remember I am aging with you
And without my glasses the picture is skewed
So who cares about what has been done
As long as birthdays keep having fun!
Sing A Song
Sing a song of birthdays
Full of fun and cheer
And may you keep on having them
For many a happy year.
Here's a posy of flowers,
And a basket too,
With birthday greetings,
All for you.
Poet: C. A. Lynch
Don't fret, have no regrets
You will soon forget
Your mind is getting old you know
And sometimes it even shows.
But carry on and happy be
In you there is always beauty.
Happy Birthday my dear
Don't let age be a fear!
As I Grow Old
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.
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?
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.
Poet: Julie Hebert
What is age, but something to count?
Some people fight it, like climbing a mount.
I choose to live, with dignity and grace,
And offer a drink, to all in this place.
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.
Here's a birthday spanking,
Sent you on a card, One, Two, Three,
Put them right on hard, Four, Five, Six,
One to live on, one to grow on, One to make you fat.
Poet: Mrs. C. K. Smith
Yes, I am ninety-one today;
The world is just as bright and gay
As when I was but "sweet sixteen,"
And not so many years between!
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.
