  1. Magical Age, Fifty!
    Poet: Julie Hebert, © 2012

    To you, we say, Happy 50th birthday
    We can't believe you hit that magical age
    We are happy that it is you, not us
    Who is going through this new stage.

    Don't be stressed about getting older,
    We all have to age at some point.
    It's nice to have someone to warn us,
    And you are the one we appoint.

    So tell us how turning 50 has affected you,
    Are you wrinkled, exhausted, or sore?
    Aging can be very nasty,
    So glad you are the one keeping score.

    Try not to think about 50 and getting older,
    Think of it as becoming wise.
    Okay, that last statement is way too funny,
    I should not be telling such lies.

    Happy 50th Birthday to you
    We love you that's true!

  10. 50 Years Gone By
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer

    Stress will kill you that is what they say
    So don't let your birthday stress you in any way
    No sense moaning about 50 years gone by
    Set your goals and let them fly.

    No one is guaranteed life tomorrow
    Don't waste yours sitting in sorrow
    Look forward, don't stay in the past
    Life is too short to stay downcast.

    Happy 50th Birthday we wish for you
    We love you that is so true!

    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer

    And you should be praised for having thrived.

  14. Turning Fifty
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer

    Turning fifty, don't be blue
    Think of it as a stage that is new
    New wrinkles, new aches
    A big birthday cake.

    But really 50 is great
    You have now made most mistakes
    You have the wisdom of the years
    That is what makes 50 so dear.

    Fifty may be a shock,
    But you can't turn back the clock
    So just enjoy your day
    And don't worry about going gray!
