I am 59 today!
Am I older and wiser than I was yesterday?
Or maybe I will be next year on my sixtieth birthday, the big one?
I always feel excited on my birthday, though I am not a child anymore
I think that this excitement comes from the realization
That I am still alive, still able to enjoy my life
That whatever life throws at me, I will eventually cope
I am grateful to be able to live till I am no longer
I should make the best of my today and tomorrows
For I don’t know how many have been granted to me
