Free 40th Birthday Poems

Just because you're 40,
Don't despair, oh no
Overnight you won't discover
You've lost your get up and go.

Nor will you become all wrinkled,
Nor ache from head to toe.
So even though you're ripening
Don't regard it as a blow,
You won't suddenly look decrepit ....

...Cos that happened long ago!!

Today, as you leave your twenties behind
Old age will descend on you, we think you'll find
It's your birthday so, you deserve the truth
You're no longer in the first flush of youth

By Mr Advancing Years you've been most definitely caught
It's time to become a more sensible sort
But hey, tomorrow's soon enough to turn that page
Drink alcohol to forget your decrepit old age
