If I Dared To Complain

I woke up today
Feeling the aches in my bones
It has been a long journey
To get me here
I have hitchhiked across America
Made friends from one end to the other
I have had money falling out of my pockets
And I have spent many nights looking for change
I have seen things
That make me wake up screaming at the night
And I have sat on the banks of the Columbia
Counting the stars until the sunrise
I have cried at the death of love ones
And cried at the birth of the loves of my life
I have flirted
With every pretty girl in the world
Well not yet
But I am still trying
My clock struck 51 today
And I have had such a wonderful life
If I dared to complain
It would be a sin

Yep I turned 51 today and I am ok with that. If I could go back and change things I surely would but if I could go back and be young again I would have to pass. It took to long to get here and I don’t want to do that trip again. The only thing that I really don’t like about getting older is the aches and pains but that is part of the process so oh well. Thanks for everything my friends, your warm thoughts keep me writing

A very happy birthday Randy! I wish I was 51 again!
the problem with complaining is that no one will listen to you because they are too busy complaining..... at least that's how I see it.
take care my friend and keep on writing.
and again - Happy birthday

The aches and pains are there for a reason. They remind us to live well, for life is short. And they remind us that passing on ends these aches and pains and so it is not so bad and we will once again either be reborn, to grow again, or we will reach the end and finally touch the devine.
Wish I had known but next year I will. Remind me though because I am prone to forgeting :-)
