Halfway home?

(Happy Birthday To Me)

I set out on this journey
when I couldn’t even crawl,
And now I’ve driven, sailed and flown
And still not seen it all.

I’m hungry for the journey
That still lies ahead of me,
The places I have never been
That I have yet to see.

This solitary journey
Has got better every year
Because I’ved found along this way
The friends I hold so dear.

They say the end looms into view,
A long and steep decline;
But on this day, so fresh and new,
Eternity is mine.
