Hello Forty. Let's talk!

Hello Forty, I'm Diane!
How kind of you to show
I think we'll get alone just fine,
though there are things you need to know...

I don't plan to slow down
because you know that I couldn't
I'll never stop dancing
or forget things I shouldn't

My old friends, the Thirties,
gave me dignity and grace
but I could have done without
these little lines left on my face

They are still quite manageable
and I can deal with them fine
but don't get any bright ideas
about leaving your own behind!

I often get these cricks
in my shoulders and my neck
Sometimes my right knee's weak
But I can keep all this in check!

So don't ever try to get me down
or put my back against a wall
Just keep your wrinkles to yo'self
and you and me? We'll have a ball!   


  1. Happy Birthday Friend! I hope you have a great day! :)

  2. And a happy first day of the best years of your life to you! Oh, and invest in some Krill oil for those aches & memory glitches - they will be a thing of the past! I can't wait to see how much you enjoy these next 10 years!!
