February Birthday

68 is quite an age
Mellow with a hint of rage
Overtones of lavender
And undertones of sage

Snow capped mountains
With a deep dark caves
Sunny spring meadows
Tombstones and graves

Meandering rivers
Placid cool lakes
Sunbathing turtles
Slithering snakes

I'll keep the laughter of children
My tears and my sorrow
I release my past
And say goodbye to tomorrow

68 is quite the age
I've had a good run
And now that the race is over
Eternity has begun...
