  1. Your Thirty
    Poet: Julie Hebert, 2011

    Today is the day we sing Happy Birthday,
    As today thirty years ago you were born.
    Hard to believe your now thirty,
    Your youth is now gone, you should mourn.

    We all knew you were getting older,
    Just didn't realize how old you’ve become.
    We will try not to mock or tease you,
    As we will always think great of our chum.

    Thirty is just another number,
    Although it's the first step, to middle age.
    Now comes wrinkles, grey hair, and baldness,
    You really should be hiding backstage.

    Okay, we've been kind of unhelpful,
    In making this birthday much fun.
    We'll roll out the carpet to introduce you,
    As on your birthday, you are truly number one.



  2. Age
    Poet: Edward Tuck

    Age is a quality of mind:
    If your dreams you've left behind,
    If hope is cold,
    If you no longer look ahead,
    If your ambition's fires are dead
    Then you are old.

    But if from life you take the best,
    And if in life you keep the zest,
    If love you hold,
    No matter how the years go by,
    No matter how the birthdays fly,
    You are not old



  3. Happy 30th


  4. We Wish You
    Author Unknown

    We wish you joy on your 30th birthday
    And all the whole year through
    For all the best that life can hold
    Is none to good for you



  5. Getting Old?
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer, 2021

    You may feel you're getting old
    But let the truth be told
    Turning 30 you are at your prime
    Enjoy the day and take your time
    Savor the moment don't look back
    Set your goals and stay on track.

    Turning 30 is a milestone
    You decide you set the tone
    Where you want your life to go
    Up or down, or, fast or slow
    It is all up to you
    And what you do.

    Happy  thirtieth  we wish for you
    Remember that age is not the issue
    It is just a number that shows the years
    It is a time to put away your fears
    The next 30 years will go so fast
    Enjoy this time to the fullest, make it last.



  6. The Years Fly By
    Poet: Catherine Pulsifer, 2021

    It seems like yesterday when
    The age you were at was only ten.
    Then before we could turn around
    The age of twenty was then found.
    Now here today, we can't believe
    Thirty years you have achieved.
    Enjoy these years as we can tell you for sure
    The next thirty will fly by faster than before.
