of George Wilson …
George Wilson is celebrating his 91st birthday today, and in honor of the big day, he’s written a poem celebrating the experience:
My Ninety-First Birthday
Ninety was special, like they said it would be
Now 91 is here, along with some pride.
Old age will catch up with you.
You can run, but you can’t hide.
For 66 years I’ve been running
Along with Helen my bride, by my side.
We have both slowed down about 80 percent.
Neither of us can see much
And we don’t know where our hearing went.
She has her walker
And I have my cane.
Thanks to friends, relatives and a lot of pills
All help to alleviate the pain.
We don’t know many people anymore
So many we knew have gone on before.
I feel thankful and privileged in so many ways
While waiting to celebrate more
And a birth announcement
