Hike It
I'd like to tell you a story,
I think it'll be one you like,
because it's about a special person,
and a rather special hike.
Life has plenty of valleys,
with many a mountain to climb,
sometimes its hard to find the track,
at others its hard to find the rhyme.
But you are such a wonderful person,
you've risen to the challenges in your life,
a successful career, a beautiful home,
you're a caring Mom and a loving wife.
But life doesn't always go to plan,
you can get stuck in a crevice or two,
but you've always kept calm and collected,
you've always known just what to do.
And we all miss your Mom so very much,
life can't always be a calm and placid sea,
 but it's nice that you felt close to her,
when climbing (and rhyming) your poetry.
You are a genuine and caring person,
you've been there when it mattered the most,
we all know that we can rely on you,
you're like a dependable leaning post.
You've been both judge and jury,
counselled many a case over so many years,
you've waded through rivers of emotion,
and probably sailed across a lake of tears.
It must have been hard for you,
reading those lines each and every day,
and then to come home each night,
and not act out the words in the play.
And now your Fifty years are up,
that's about 17,250 days,
but you're still growing so much,
you're growing in so many exciting ways.
And you're a bit of a roamer,
everybody knows that you love to rove,
but beware that two pots and an absent mind,
usually make for a very hot and smoky stove !
And we wonder at your wandering,
off you go when the weather is fine,
wandering into a rock or two, 
or wandering right across the line !
So we wanted to wish you the best,
that is what these lines are for,
just know that we love and care for you,
and wish you at least another fifty more.
And as this sentiment comes to an end,
we hope indeed that you like it,
because we have one last wish for you:
Go chase your dream, GO Hike It!

 "Hi - I loved the poem but I do  have some alterations for it....."


(Note from Ed: We went to the fourth draft - but as the man said - satisfaction guaranteed ! :)
