Happy Birthday To Me

I'm sitting here, crying like a little kid. My skittles didn't get stolen. I just lost my youth, is all. Fifty years removed from the day I was born, I wonder where it all went. I'm sure some of you can relate. I was born sensitive and something tells me I'll die the same way. Who will be staring into my eyes when I take that final leap of faith? If only that were up to me. I can see those eyes right now. 

Well, let's not go there today. It's my birthday, dammit. We need to get a bit more festive. So here's to me and all of you who like me. 

I couldn't have done this without you.

Blue

  2. Happy Birthday Blue

    you were born sensitive a rare bloom
    red roses, budding with romantic fire
    awaking desires, heavenly perfume
    the moon and stars lift you higher

    I was thinking of you, it's true!
    I guess that is why I am first
    we need a drink to quench our thirst

    4. I had a drink and told myself, "5 decades down... could've been worse."

      How are you doing, True?

    1. Why, thank you! Could you run that by me again? (young 'un)

    2. Young 'un. Most definitely a young 'un from my increasingly fossilised perspective.

  4. Happy birthday Blue! Age is just a number, remember that. It does go by incredibly fast, but you are still a youngster!

  9. Happy Birthday Blue! But please smile for it. Every year you get to see the number go up is a blessing that many others weren't fortunate enough to see. I really hope I'm lucky enough to see the big 5-0 in 10 years!

  11. Happy birthday, Blue! Let me tell you what's important: character - experience - soul - wit - empathy - understanding -passion. You win on all. Age? Nobody cares except the vacuous.

    1. The vacuous can go sit on a stick and watch a stick flick. (Don't ask.) Thanks, Jules Dear.

    2. Yep. Just turned 50 last year. Recently lost a valuable relationship with a close family member. Something I thought would never happen. It was emotionally tough but, you're right, we're alive and kickin'
