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'! ©Mary Carter Mizrany January 4, 2006 Used With Permission All Rights Reserved By Author Mail Website Website
