I used to think, in some ways
Turning 35 was the mid-point
Of my life, or in other words,
Half way to death;
My father died At 70.

When I turned 40
I felt halfway through
a life of 80 years;
The same at 50. There my math stopped,
A life of 100 years seemed long enough.

My mother told me, after 35                               .
My body would change for the worse;
I’d grow a belly and when
I got out of bed in the morning,
My back would hurt. She was a prophet.

Happy birthday daughter Jessica;
At thirty-five you are only one-third of the way
Through your glorious life and although your body
May decide to complain, there’s more rainbow
Ahead of you, than rain.

Daisy Study by Pat Morgan

Open your sails                                                                 
Let the wind carry you 
It never fails
Your heart will open too.

It is true and tried
What do you have to lose
Your pain will subside
You’re done paying your dues.

Navigate with your heart
Know I am your friend
I promise a new start
Love will find you again.
