- (Birthday Poem #1) For someone special


Today is the day!

Where it can't be postponed regardless of the weather
Where you may or may not like what you see in the mirror
Where you’re loved ones will say you never looked better
Where your friends will suddenly and gratefully become closer
Where life prices go up and car prices go down for the insurer
Where you know for sure you aren’t getting any smarter
Where the system will say you’re one year older

Who are you?
What are you doing?
Where are you from?
Surprised you made it this far?

Who will you be?
Where are you going?
What will you become?
Hoping for a better part?

So many questions to ask one
So many answers to choose from
So many wishes to send one

But to this person…

The important thing to remember is
That you’re still here!
And This, in itself,
Is Reason enough to celebrate!

Happy birthday!

    I do love the first part of this poem:
    'Where it can't be postponed regardless of the weather
    Where you may or may not like what you see in the mirror
    Where you’re loved ones will say you never looked better
    Where your friends will suddenly and gratefully become closer'

Poem of the Day

poet Christina Georgina Rossetti

Where sunless rivers weep
Their waves into the deep,
She sleeps a charmed sleep:
Awake her not.
Led by a single star,
She came from very far
