Medium Poems

Half a Century
Half a century has come and gone,
And still I feel like a child at dawn.
I’ve seen so much, both joy and pain,
But life’s experience will always be my gain.

I’ve learned to laugh, love and live,
And wisdom through the years did give.
I continue to grow, day by day,
And with grace, I journey on my way.

Today marks a milestone in my life,
A celebration of all that’s good and nice.
Thank you, friends and family dear,
For making this day, oh so clear.

Here’s to the next half-century,
With hope, love, and adventure aplenty.
May life give me all that I seek,
And the love of those close, ever so sweet.

Golden Moments
As I enter my golden years,
I reflect back, shedding grateful tears.
I’ve lived a life of wonder and joy,
And every moment, I’ll always enjoy.

My journey has taken me far and wide,
With friends and family by my side.
I’ve laughed and cried, loved and lost,
But even life’s storms, I did not exhaust.

I’m grateful for every moment gone by,
For every laugh, every tear, every sigh.
As I look ahead, I see a bright light,
Filled with love, hope, and memories so bright.

I’ll continue to embrace life, come what may,
Guided by my heart, and led by my way.
Thank you, God, for these golden moments so true,
And I promise to make the most of every moment anew.

Long Poems

Half Century Celebration

Half a century has gone by,
And yet it seems like just a sigh.
A milestone reached, a day to cheer,
We gather round to lend an ear.

To reminisce, to laugh and grin,
Our stories new and old begin.
Of childhood dreams that took us far,
Of youthful loves that left a scar.

But challenges we did withstand,
And grew up to become a band.
Of warriors brave, of friends so true,
Our journeys tough, but journeys through.

And now we stand at 50’s brink,
Our eyes set forth, our hearts in sync.
To take on life with all its might,
And write our stories with delight.

So let us raise a toast to all,
To life, to love, to rising tall.
May every day be filled with grace,
As we journey on at our own pace.

For 50 years we’ve walked this earth,
And lived in all its joy and mirth.
So cheers to us, to who we are,
A shining light, a guiding star.

Halfway to 100

Halfway to 100, that’s where you stand,
Looking back at your life, oh so grand.
Fifty years of laughter, love, and tears,
So many memories, so many cheers.

You’ve lived a life full of adventure and fun,
Fought battles hard, and many you’ve won.
You’ve climbed mountains and crossed oceans,
And learned life’s lessons without any commotions.

You’ve loved and lost, and loved again,
Built friendships that will last till the end.
You’ve been a mentor, a guide, and a friend,
And every person you’ve met can attest to that, no pretend.

You’ve enjoyed the little things in life,
And filled your days with love, joy, and strife.
You’ve shared your gifts with the world around,
Given hope to those in need, and never backed down.

Now it’s time to celebrate your fiftieth year,
With cakes, balloons, and lots of cheer.
With family and friends by your side,
You toast to a life full of pride.

Halfway through to a century old,
With precious memories that you hold.
May the next fifty years bring you more joy,
And happiness that no one can destroy.

So, here’s a toast to the person you’ve become,
And to the life you’ve lived, every moment and sum,
May your future be brighter than your yesterday,
And may you always find a reason to laugh and play.
