GOLDEN YEARS GODDESS

Tenderly look back upon the child,

with her tiny childhood tears,

whilst smiling a sweet smile for her,

in the wisdom of your fifty golden years.

Let your heart softly speak to the girl,

with her terrible teenage fears,

whispering your kind regard for her,

in the wisdom of your fifty golden years.

Gently embrace the young lady,

who believed that love always disappears,

cherish now fond thoughts for her,

in the wisdom of your fifty golden years.

Look kindly upon the woman of middle age,

who felt trapped, perhaps, by life's many snares,

as into freedom you walk with her

in the wisdom of your fifty golden years.

Realise in your wisdom today,

that on the horizon as a Goddess appears,

its you Una, you are her,

with all the beauty of your fifty golden years.

So let your inner Goddess shine her light,

on all your future cares,

as you walk hand in hand with her,

in the beauty and the wisdom of all your golden years.

I wrote this poem for my wife on the occasion of her 50th birthday.
