Age is just a number,
And yours is rather high.

We love you to the sky!

Up there in years but we hold you dear

Your hair's turning grey,
You're up there in years.

But we still hold you dear!

Your radiant smile is each day renewed.
Your grace and beauty on your jubilee of gold
Are an inspiring sight for all to behold!

Over the hill

You're over the hill, we all agree,
There's no going back when you hit fifty.

With fifty comes weight and aching joints,
And you realize you've reached the halfway point.

Who would have thought you'd still be able to see,
When your eyes have aged for half a century?

As things fall apart and other things end,
Just remember you'll always have friends!

bunting divider

Life is just beginning

What a wonderful thing it must be,
To celebrate year Fifty!
To look back on your life, with your minds eyes
To think of the lows, and re-live the highs

But don't think you're old. Life is just beginning,
A new chapter while the world is spinning.
While I reflect on the day, I have one wish for you,
May all your deepest dreams come true.

bunting divider

Celebrate big!

Fifty years on this earth...
An incredible milestone!
So pause and look up
Lift your nose from the grindstone

Reflect on your life
The laughter and tears
And celebrate big
'Coz you're 50 years!

bunting divider

You haven't aged (long version)

It is so unfair that you manage to wear
Fifty years in a youthful way!
For your healthy glow and the spring in your step
Take many of those years away!

You age almost not with hardly a spot
I can scarcely believe my eyes
Please share how you manage, if only with me,
How you stay both good-looking and wise.

Still youthful

Five decades, half a century,
Years failing to find their hold,
Lie conquered, well-traversed,
Behind your steady gait.

And still remains your youthful glow,
Tomorrow's moments to conceive,
Love to share and life to live,
And wonders to await.

Here's to 50 more (full version)

Welcome to being 50!
You've reached a special point
Some will never make it to,
But you didn't disappoint.

You've conquered many an obstacle
You've achieved many a dream
You're greying at the temples
And your eyes still have a gleam

You're entering another phase,
It's one you'll love the most.
An amazing time of freedom!
So I'd like to make a toast...

To a man that we all know
And who all of us adore,
Congratulations on your 50 years,
And here's to 50 more

Old but made of gold (full version)

So now you're turning 50
It seems so odd to me
That a man can reach such a ripe old age
With such a creaky knee.

Your children love you dearly
And that's surprising, too
That kids will love a geezer so old
But I guess that's what kids do

To grow so old and feeble
And to think that you still drive!
Watch out! Old fart! Should be on your car
To help other drivers survive.

So, let me wish you the very best
With this little birthday rhyme
You might be old, but you're made of gold
Happy Birthday! You're doing just fine!

50 only comes once (full version)

Your 50th year
Is an incredible time
So take full advantage
Of your amazing prime

And celebrate life,
The tears and successes
That have brought you to where you are
And all your life possesses

With the lessons you've gained
And the wisdom you share
Every soul you touch
knows how deeply you care

You've made incredible leaps
In your fulfilling career
Building strength upon strength
And year upon year

So enjoy this year
And say "Yes" a lot
Fifty only comes once
So give it your best shot!

Life's Mystery at 50

Life's Mystery at 50
Each phase is a new dream
embarked inside of another
clouds form from particles
of these selves, others

enacted, constantly shifting
amoeba of living, you could
not see any of it coming
but you took it in like wood

good for the fire you keep
inside, that lights up with time
and heat the more it steeps in
your immense experience

the more kind your eyes towards
those you see, darkened
in trials. Once that was you,
you've lived that, through

and through, and now unfazed,
more yourself than ever
looking back on the journey
secure in your own mystery.
