61st Birthday poem for my wife

Celebrations over of a 60th year passed
Years flash on so unbelievably fast
Another birthday poem for my dear wife
At 61 you’re still the charm of my life

A vine withers, unlike your heart
Pulse still strong, at was at the start
New horizons now my retirement looms
New seasons now to enjoy new blooms

All my best wishes, may I please say
Warm under blankets, or in the cold rain
Wherever we roam or wherever we fly
Blessings to count under a Southern Cross sky

Blessed is she to not only have a partner who obviously loves her so deeply, but who can express it in the age old romantic verse of poetry.. birthday kisses to your lovely wife (it's a dutch custom)
hugs

Hi Lindsay,
Happy birthday, anne. lease, don;t read all the ecellent comments. As they say behind every successful man and poet, there is a very surprised wife.
I like your article on virusses, but you don't go further back. How did they occur?

Hi Josie Ingrid & John

Thanks you for your comments. I will pass on your best wishes to Anne.

John -Viruses I think go back to our very beginnings in evolution in the sea when cellular developments first took place. However no fossil virus has ever been discovered, as they are too small and fragile to survive any form of fossilisation, hence we can only make logical deductions.

Your wife and my older son (the Army one) share a birthday.

Very belated birthday wishes to her.
