35 is Just a Number
If you ask me how old I am, I’ll say I don’t remember
I only stay one number from January through December
I remember the year that I was born because that will never change
I recall my children’s dates of birth, but not their age. How strange
When our grandkids celebrate, they might feel somewhat slighted
I sometimes show up two days after, the date I was invited.
My car year changes with each new or different ride
If I said that I remembered, you’d know that I had lied
Our furry friends age rapidly. Take every year times seven
Time goes too fast for them and us. Glad there is a doggy heaven
The cat is the crafty one. We’re sure that she’ll survive us
Her age? I have no idea. Each year seems to be nonpluss.
I think for grins I’ll figure out how how long we have been wed
Or should I try to figure out how old I am instead
No I think I’ll calculate how many years of wedded bliss
Write the number inside a card and seal it with a kiss
2016 less 1981..good grief time flew by fast
35 years together, and they said it wouldn’t last
It takes a lot patience, understanding, faith, and love
And more than just a few prayers sent from here to up above
I’ve been sick.. and Kip is feeling kind of down.
So I told him just for today, he could wear my crown.
Even Charles was cute when he was little
