Fifty


What is it about turning fifty
That makes you think of life
That makes you think of truth
That puts new value on time.

What is it about turning fifty
That makes one understand
People make mistakes
I can give another chance

What is it about turning fifty
That sorts the permanent from the sand
The things that really matter
Have defined now who I am

What is it about turning fifty
That loves the family crew
I appreciate where I've been
But now, it's where I'm going to

What is it about turning fifty
That somehow I still feel
There's so much more to do
God's call now fully sealed

What is it about turning fifty
As the eyes begin to fade
How I see more clearly
The things that I have gained

What is it about turning fifty
That sees the value of love
More than ever before
How Grace was paid in blood

What is it about turning fifty
The height of middle age
That makes me appreciate more
The Hand who turns the page.
