years is really not enough
In which to plumb the depths of someone's
Fifty more years, then, should be the goal:
To know the beauty of another's love,
Yearnings share, and any doubts
Yet life was never

Everest is sometimes hard to climb.
A will to love has brought you to this time,
Rich in joys that time cannot remove.
So may this day be filled with happy
