Thirty-Nine

Today he turns thirty-nine
A year below two-score.
May before the fatal decline
This year bring him one more,

One more victory for the Cards,
One more book to write;
One more time in the cards
To shooting the winning score.

One time more before decline
Of hair and aching back.
Before the sight and the mind
Move into the night.

Happy Birthday, Phil!
Have a cheerful day!

Happy birthday Phil!!!

Unfortunately for suffering Phillies fans like myself, "one more win for the Cards" today would be too late... they let the Astros beat them the last two days and sunk our wild card chances!

Thanks be to God for His grace that this annual heartache will not exist in the life to come... ;-)

p.s. I apologize for using the occasion of Phil's birthday as an excuse to vent!
