A GIFT ON MY B-DAY TODAY


A GIFT ON MY B-DAY TODAY
Melvin Banggollay


I can't sleep last night
I was thinking of the days
I had my Dad as my light
Guiding me on my ways
as I struggled to fight
Trials life had to convey
in my desire to write
My own life and story.

After long awake night
Slumber touched my eyes
letting me close so tight
eyelids of my serene eyes
to take a nap for the night
but memories still arise
keeping me awake all night
though I'm snorking thrice.

Then after a few moment
A kiss touched my head
waking me up with lament
for I was not yet ahead
touching Dad's garment
and kissing his forehead
but when a voice sediment
echoed in my ear and head
greeting me happy birthday
from my loving mother,
I rise and hug her as I say
thank you and don't bother
to give me any gift today
for You and Dad forever
my greatest gifts till eternity.


Written by me and for me
Today on my birthday
November 7
