Experienced and at heart young , A fire burning bright behind the eyes and above the tongue.


Familiar with life's ways a veteran at making it through everyday and turning a path into a chance to convey.


Many seeds you have watered, with the success and wisdom  you’ve brought

 Beauty seeing the face of many years  like the ocean with a gracious still motion.


 Aged like a fine wine and in the bottle a hint of time, All though the body is not like before the mind is divine.


 Royalty in the eyes of God and in the arms of a clock, With a reward more fine then any diamond or mere gold.

 In at least ones youth you have gave insight,  This is a crown of white.
