Some folks seem old at twenty
Some never seem to age . . .
Some get face-lifts and tummy tucks
When their life's book turns a page ~
Some folks just get 'an attitude'
Seem to grumble and complain . . .
Lose that 'dew fresh' appearance
In sunshine think only rain ~
Yet, some folks are quite different
Roll with the punch right along . . .
Adversities cause them to 'hunker down'
Run the race with the strong ~
Let my heart stay fresh and vibrant
As youthful as you please . . .
Retaining the spirit of a child
By spending time upon my knees ~
In the sweet presence of our Lord
'neath the shadow of His wing . . .
That on my birthday every year
I'll have the 'HEART OF SPRING'!
