Birthday Girl

Am I being too bold?
To say Lordy! You’re OLD

Old enough to grow
Old enough to know
Old enough to show
Old enough to sow
Old enough to flow
Old enough to glow…

Glowing as you are
Glowing as a star
that sparkles so bright
at the speed of light…

***Written for a very special and unique lady to celebrate her upcoming birthday
(Oh well, what the hell…It’s for her contest too)

    We are all old enough to grow and grow and grow some more!! :) ps..........thanks my fellow operatic friend, for guiding me to Aretha Franklin's rendition of Nessun Dorma...........wow!!!!!! Who would have thought that a soul singing diva could dish that amazing piece like that........substituting for Pavarotti, no less!! I had never seen that video.......I loved it.......thanks Tim.....not many share the love of opera.....see what they are missing???????????? lol !!!
