    Smile birthday poems for seniors

    A question---Does anyone know where I might find a birthday poem for an oldster who just turned 80? My copy was on a diskette and is no longer accessible. The first part began---Today, dear Lord, I'm 80 and so much I haven't done. I hope, dear Lord, you'll let me live 'til I'm 81?.............

    I have the one for 90 years . The one for an 80 year old was similar. Can anyone help? I would appreciate it.

    Hi Ferne -

    I found a couple of variations on it. Several different names are given credit, have a few wording changes, and end at different ages. Not sure which is the "real" one, but maybe you will know.

    (asks to past 90)

    (asks to live til 91, and is structured more as a series of journal entries.)

    Hope this helps . . .
