A Birthday Wish from a Very Strange Friend

This poem was written for one of my Best Friends for her Quinceñera Birthday Card. I find the words 'Happy Birthday' to be quite empty at times, esspeacially when one hears them over and over and over again, they begin to lose their meaning. I wrote to her this poem instead of writing Happy Birthday in her card.

Sitting in your room reading Twilight
Reading about a vampire and a werewolf who wanted but could not fight.
Reading and watching the hours go by
Sometimes wishing Jacob would just go die.

This might be just one of the things you did in your childhood years
A mighty good way to get rid of your fears.
(Because Edward through your window would climb in one day
And chase all of those fears right away)

Stalking British Gentlemen
Hoping to make one of them your boyfriend
That must have been fun
Both of those times were yesterday and almost long gone.

On this day people might say
“Congratulations on your special day”
But I can’t and I won’t, those words are much to plain.

I do hope for the best
And that you pass these womanly test,
But I don’t want to write empty words
Words that mean nothing,
I hope that to you these words might mean something.

Your womanly adventure begins here,
Good luck, bon chance, I’m sure there’s nothing to fear.
(Except maybe an angry Ponslet,
And imagining her in a corset=P)

Lots of love, which I wish never ends,
Best wishes from a really strange friend! !

Poem of the Day

poet Pablo Neruda

I want you to know
one thing.

You know how this is:
if I look
at the crystal moon, at the red branch
of the slow autumn at my window,
