Forty-three has been well served by fortune.
Often, though, the trick is just to know it.
Reasons may abound to feel abused.
To feel blessed is like listening to music,
Yearning to hear the song that one is hearing.

There is in all lives much that is endearing.
How could one not turn to it and choose it?
Remember that sweet choice when life's confused,
Embracing what one has and quick to show it,
Each love one touches with a generous passion.
