Turning a new Leaf, turning forty
I look back at life gone by and feel how silly was I
Fretting over issues mundane, getting worked up over minute detail
Now that I have turned forty, I don’t feel there are issues any.
As my concentration takes up better things, so many.
Turning forty has unfold me the secrets of body and nature
That has lead to me becoming wiser and mature than before.
Now that I have turned forty has made me smarter than ever
To recognize people by there smile and befriend them never
Pencil heels hurt my feet always
to which I agree nowadays.
I am more worried about my health insurance
Than the shade of my lipstick these days.
I am more concerned about the acidity I would face
If I stay on a diet.
Lately I give two pennies for a skin tight jeans
And prefer a cotton pajama light.
These days I laugh out loud on people announcing
that the world is going to stop spinning soon
As I know now that all ends are new beginnings
And the night is the darkest before the sun shines bright
As I have turned the leaf and turned forty with grace.
