Thirty-nine is often full of wonder,
Having found a purpose for her life.
If some prefer the surface, others dive,
Reaching for a reason they're alive,
The meaning that might moor a man and wife,
Yearning that sustains them deep down under.

Nor is her life a palace she might plunder,
In which the stone-faced, dancing idols thrive.
Nothing will her will from her heart sunder,
Even as she wields her healing knife.
