I thought I would write a little poem as its my birthday today, with thoughts of another year older should I be happy, or sad?

IT'S MY BIRTHDAY TODAY


Another year older to add to the rest
With cards and best wishes and cake to digest,
The adage “it’s only a number” I guess
Is another good reason to cry and contest?
Is it me getting older or is it them in decline
I tolerate less and drink much more red wine

LOOKING BACK


And yet in my head I am still at an age
My thoughts want to do things
My body won’t engage
I look in the mirror and see all of the signs
A little grey on the sides, and my face showing Lines
And then I think back to the bad times of my life
Thank god I thought twice about taking a wife
It’s not so bad now I still have my health
And because I am single I still have my wealth..

Good use of rhyme throughout this poem, an interesting reflection on one's years.

Happy birthday :-) Getting older gives you more excuses to do things your way!

You load sixteen tons, what do you get?
Another day older and deeper in debt.
Saint Peter, don't you call me, 'cause I can't go;
I owe my soul to the company store...

Sorry I'm so late with this, Johnny but I had to add my wishes to this piece. I especially enjoyed the ending.
