I’m The Luckiest: The Big Five – O

It’s a big deal.
50 revolutions around the sun…
I get that!
I get to do that!?
50 times
Spin and come back
to center
Spin and come back
to center
This is what I get?!
And to keep going?

Oh my…
oh my…
I am struck
and overcome

Thank you life.
thank you.

I’m not ready to go
I don’t want to
but if it was my time
I would say
thank you

50 years
each year infiniti
50 loops

50 times to smell spring
50 times to touch skin
50 times to learn
50 times to feel the pain of life
50 times to fall in love
50 times to laugh
50 times to be stubborn
50 times to be forgiven
50 times to love a child
50 times to love a woman
50 times to write
50 times to see the fear of death
50 times to make friends
50 times to dance
50 times to teach
50 times to share
50 times…

to walk, head up, heart up
in my home
bricks and grass
grey skys and rain
metal and concrete
shelter and warmth
and radio signals
and music
and coffee and silence
and children…

Oh lord…

and children

Oh lord…

the grace overcomes me
the fortune of my life
the fortune of life
to know a child
to be a child
and to know the difference
and to be
your best
and open the soul
with the key
you’ve been given
we’ve all been given

Even the pattern of the bricks
on this grey morning
is magic
someone cared to make it so
someone inspired
I am inspired
I am a human
this is my world
and I belong here

50 loops
50 years

I am sorry for your pain
I am happy for your strength
I am grateful for my life
and it will never end
so much bigger
so much bigger
than we know

Fuckin’ A – Yay!
Fuckin’ A – YAY!

Happy Birthday To Me
I am not the luckiest
But I am the luckiest

I am so lucky.
Happy Birthday To Me.
