A Birthday Sonnet

-

More nearer fifty than twenty five

Oh it's been such a pleasure to be alive

-

Through all the happiness and falling rains

Standing in the sunshine and emotional pains

-

More near fifty than twenty five

Living within humanities busy hive

-

With people I've loved and people who's died

People I've smiled with and for those which I've cried

-

More nearer fifty than twenty five

Oh it's been such a pleasure to be alive

-

Birthdays come and birthdays go

-

A passing in the blink of an eye

We all age as clocks silently ticks by

-

For three score and ten we were half promised

A chance to live and sing our life’s sonnets

-

More nearer fifty than twenty five

Oh it's been such a pleasure to be alive

-

And still I’m here

And still I rise

-

I live my life
And still I thrive.
