65: A Birthday Poem

Today I'm 65
And here I am you see – close to my P.O.B.
I have stood in Antarctica, and watched the snow fall there.
I have withstood triple digit heat,
Heard the grass crunch neath my feet.
I've slept beneath a pure dark sky
Observed the heart of our galaxy pass by.
I strove to do, I strove to win.
I had my share of victory and defeat.
The world changed and so did I
Watching the years fly by.
I managed to stay alive,
And with God's help retain my drive.
Am I really 65???
I came to help and partake
More than just a birthday cake.
I came to know, I came to learn
God's grace you cannot earn
For you, for me
God's grace is free
it's free.
