Birthday Poem For My Angel Baby


 
My child he has a birthday
It marks another year
No party or cake to celebrate
for which I shed a tear
 
My tears they fall in secret
But my prayers are said aloud
I hope the angels will celebrate
High up in the clouds
 
Its true my baby only spent
Two days upon the earth
But forever he will be my child
And I'll celebrate his birth
 
And although it seems this year may bring
less tears than years before
I have had to learn to be more strong
so I can smile about him more
 
I will light a candle for my boy
as a symbol of today
A birthday for a five year old
should never be this way
 
If I'd a birthday wish to make
you know what it would be
to give my son a birthday kiss
and hold him close to me
 
To not know this pain, I may have wished
But only for a day
those special days I spent with him
I would never wish away

poet Edmund Spenser

Of this worlds theatre in which we stay,
My love like the spectator ydly sits
Beholding me that all the pageants play,
Disguysing diversly my troubled wits.
