Tomorrow is my birthday; I will be 69;
If that sounds really old to YOU, I'M feeling fine!
On my body, some signs of living have been sprinkled--
Such as sags and bags and spots and rusty joints and wrinkles!
Some people fear the aging process like a GERM--
Not I! I'm a fine antique; PATINA is my term!
If to the human body time is sometimes unforgiving,
I'm grateful for an awful lot of things... including LIVING!
Happy birthday to me; R.A.T. (Rose About Town)
