My Birthday Has Nothing To Do With It

November 16, 2010 § 9 Comments

On Saturday I’ll turn 39 years old
A full twelve months before I am 40

My birthday has nothing to do with it
A happenstance to start feeling my age

Some days a fair bit older

It’s dawning on me, these second life symptoms
Occurring ever faster, that I see things anew

With kids well into their teens and older

It’s rubbing me that I should start thinking
About a life that’s more my own

My birthday has nothing to do with it
It just so happens while I’m thinking these things

I’ve been good, I’ve more than overcome
I’ve excelled and received outward approval

It’s time I did some things for myself, just because
And my birthday has nothing to do with it

But it helps, a day just for me, presents and cake
