  9. Aging Advice
    Poet: Julie Hebert, 2011

    Happy Birthday to my dear friend,
    I wish you a happy and great day.
    Can't believe you're now one year older,
    Time to celebrate and holler Hooray!

    Being an age older than you,
    I must give you a little advice.
    Growing older is not just getting wiser,
    It's all in the roll of the dice.

    Some of us start to forget things,
    Others our bodies unravel.
    We wish we could take aging and stop it,
    Or maybe sent it somewhere to travel.

    All I can say is eat well,
    And try and take care of yourself.
    A little exercise and great company,
    Is what aging is all about.

  10. My Age Surpasses Yours!
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer

    Who am I to give aging advice on your special day?
    Well, my age surpasses yours in every single way.
    But listen here my youthful friend, don't fret or fuss,
    Forget about the numbers, live and be you, that's a must.

    So blow out those candles, drink, and be merry,
    Cheers to another year, so full of joy and not so scary.
    Age forget it, how do you feel in your mind,
    Happy Birthday my friend you're one of a kind!

  11. Age forget it, how do you feel in your mind, Happy Birthday my friend you're one of a kind!

  12. Remember This
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer

    On this, your birthday, my friend, remember this,
    Prioritize self-care, this step don't miss.
    Stay socially active, with loved ones near,
    Embrace new experiences, banish fear.

    Practice mindfulness, in each breath you take,
    Maintain a positive outlook, troubles forsake.
    Cultivate gratitude, for all life's shown,
    Stay curious and learn, your wisdom grown.
