Armand

Silver haired sage with a golden tongue
Sixty years of wisdom has been gained
Today's the day his praises are sung

Body and mind have been fully trained
He sees the planet in his own way
Sixty years of wisdom has been gained

Living with purpose able to play
Passion is the special gift he gives
He sees the planet in his own way

He chooses simple in the way he lives
People more important than anything
Passion is the special gift he gives

Happy Birthday together we sing
Everyone has their time to be loved
People more important than anything

Heart that's open a hand ungloved
Silver haired sage with a golden tongue 
Everyone has their time to be loved
Today's the day his praises are sung

Dedicated to my friend Armand Delisle

    Priceless words. Nice that you respect the wisdom of the aged. I like listening to all their stories of long ago. I have got a contest running now; it is called Irish Poems.

    As you get older the aged do not seem so old anymore. In the scheme of things even a hundred years is a very short time to be here. We are all so very very young.
