Forty-five finds fortune in her favor,
Old enough to know to will the wind.
Reason sees no reason to rescind
The choices that would lead to love she'd savor.
Yet there is much that she would leave behind.

For her there's joy in relishing life's flavor,
In being ready rather than resigned,
Vested in the play of heart and mind,
Embracing all the gifts that fortune gave her.
