Who wants to be reminded
that you’re getting on age?
That you’re lots and lots older now,
from the day you were born?
From a very active lifestyle
To a humdrum existence
To a recurring sore knees
To an unclasped fists
To memories left outside the door
To undecided steps?
From pigging out to minimalist food intake?
From rare headache pill to multiple maintenance?
From a multi-tasker to a “one-at-a-timer” please?
From infinitesimal sensitivity
To a “cry me a river” scenario?
From an unstoppable flicks watching and
insatiable book reading
To a bespectacled, myopic-eyed self?
From a more than 10 hours sleep
To a 5 or a blinker?
Not I said the “Bornee”
Not I said the “Celebrator”
Not I said the “Septuagenerian-NOT”!
Age is just a number, really
Dance and sing to your heart’s content
Eat everything else, remember,
you have your maintenance
Getting old? It’s all in the Mind!
Enjoy to the fullest..
So Happy birthday to you, you Gorgeous, Pretty,
