By The Numbers.


By the numbers


There's only nine double digits
if fate grants you due course
you will travel a long path
others miss with remorse
you'll exist by the numbers
in the end you will know
that you lived to enjoy
the whole nine shown below
just under halfway
middle aged...wait...there's more
the golden years shine
on fate's sweet double date
then in such little time
99......rears it's head
as you sit and reflect
on things done
and things said
occassionally fate
lets one live beyond this
sometimes filled with great pain
or quite well... full of bliss
to the very ripe age
of one-hundred-eleven
before they are shipped
rather old... off to heaven
only nine double digits
most make seven or eight
each one marks something special
when it comes..... celebrate!!!
life is shorter this way
and more precious your time
double digits are scarce
cherish them... strive for nine.
"May you live as long as you want ....
and may you never want as long as you live!!"
