My little sis has turned 50,
for decades she’s been blessed,
with five beautiful, outgoing boys
whose love has never ceased.
Her life is now vivacious
as she grabs it with both hands,
in partnership with her true love,
a man by whom she stands.
At the ripe old age of 45,
she also became a nan,
her grandchildren light up her life
with wonder as only children can.
She should be very proud of the
five handsome sons she’s raised,
their successes in life are due to their
mother’s encouragement and praise.
Did life begin for you at 40?
No, that was a warm up glance!
At 50 life has more wisdom and meaning
and now it is time to dance.
So kick up your heels my gorgeous sis,
life has not always been that kind,
you have an exciting new story to write
as this decade brings peace of mind.
