Someone, somewhere, is turning eighty today. This post is to celebrate you…or someone you know!
TODAY I AM 80
Today, dear Lord, I’m 80 and there’s so much I haven’t done, I hope and pray you’ll let me live until I’m 81.
But then, if I haven’t finished all that I want to do, would you let me stay a little while, until I’m 82?
So many places I want to go, so very much to see; do you think you could manage to let me make 83?
The world is changing very fast, there is so much in store, I’d like it very much if I could live to 84.
And if by then it happens that I am still alive, I’d really like to stay around until I’m 85.
There’ll be more planes up in the air, and more problems to be fixed, so I’d like to be around to see it all when I am 86.
I know, dear Lord, it’s much to ask (for it must be nice in heaven), but I’d really like to stay right here until I’m 87.
I know by then I won’t be fast, and sometimes I’ll be late, but it would be so pleasant to be around at 88.
I will have seen so many things and had a wonderful time, so, I’m willing to wait to leave this world at the age of 89. (maybe).
Just one more thing I’d like to say; dear Lord, I thank you kindly, but if it’s okay with you, I’d love to live past 90.
