She had another birthday
And she sat before the mirror
She contemplated her gray hair
Her wrinkles and her years

But she didn't need to fret
She shouldn't really fear
Cause her gray hairs are memories
Her wrinkles are souvenirs

Each strand of silver shows a worry
That never came to pass
Each deep line upon her face
Is there because she laughed

There have been times of trouble
And there have been times of stress
But life has really been quite good
For she's been truly blest

And so it's Happy Birthday
She is so very dear
For her gray hairs are memories
And her wrinkles are souvenirs

    Steven, Another great write...this shows some of your character...Apreciation of the precious beings made by God..The Queen of Enland was quoted as saying why should I do anything about my wrinkles for I earned everyone of them...The form that you chose to present the idea is well done..Keep the creative pen flowing. I am going to add you to my favorite poet's list..Sara

    Very well written, I can picture the person exactly. For whom was this written, if anyone?
