The Big Three-O

Written for my son's thirtieth birthday

The big Three-O has come your way,
It looks like it is here to stay.

Don't try to fight it, it's no use,
It's got you now, you can't break loose.

What's that you say? You feel just fine?
You think you'll have a glass of wine?

Just when you think that all's okay,
The big Four-O is on its way.

And then the big 50! Something that keeps going forward and can never go backwards. Only the memories that were. A deep thought poem and a
most well written one, as short as it is, I love it. Thank you for sharing, David. Truthful and
and unique.

All I can say is this is cute, but it's not gonna be funny when the kid finds some type of way of getting you back for it.

Thirty...I remember that! Fond memories and good times, but the good times are not done. This is cute David! Thanks for the grin, Anthony

A nice touch as usual.
It comes to us all. The main thing is not to let your mind age as well as your body.
In my head I'm at least forty years younger, ok, physically, I can't do now what I could do then.
But I can still manage it four times in a row.
Spring Summer Autumn and Winter.
Thanks for reminding me.

Despite Debra's reassuring message, I'm scared to get that old!! I mean, because it's like... the age after 29! And it's another ten years behind you.

What's up with all of you and thinking thirty is old?! Come on! Most of my friends are anywhere between 19-42, and I go to college with them. It's the greatest age! Young enough to still have fun, old enough to know how to stay out of trouble, and attractive enough to still get the coeds ^.^

Awesome work, David!
