50th Birthday and A Rose by any other name......


Version One
============

A Rose is not a Rose without the thorns,

You have a full life and share of thorns,

The beauty of a rose will fade in time,

Beauty may fade but wisdom matures like wine.
-

Version Two
===========

A Rose by any other name,

Would just sound so tame.

Such beauty is the Rose,

Even with thorns, it shows.


Another year has passed

You have passed your test

A clean bill of health

is important than wealth.

For when you have your health

You can then build your wealth!
