Happy Birthday Dear Friend - Poem by ANJALI SINHA

On this day,
to your Pa and Ma
a condign star was born.
A precious one,
God gave this world,
a special gift
That was YOU,
the day YOU were born.

Your sempervirent nature,
touched many lives I know,
A sempiternal brook of kindness
that wants to merge with the ocean.
A difference in this world
YOU made,
Not only for me
But those around YOU too.

On this your birthday,
I wish YOU a life of blessedness.
May all your fondest dreams come true,
That with every candle on your birthday cake,
a lovely surprise await YOU.
My wish for YOU -that whatsoever
YOU want most in life-
come your way,
just the way YOU imagined it
or maybe better.

I hope YOU treasure
this friendship,
and nothing can succedaneum this,
as much I do.
Look forward,
for many more happy birthdays
to follow,
in friendship with YOU,

Happy Birthday dear friend
I wish God’s opulent Blessings inundate YOU
And good wishes, to last YOU all lifes through
And with this sincerest hope and joy
That will never end
From which YOU can
to others lend.
May each new birthday
Be the best YOU ever knew


Yours best friend

    I do read you I just don't comment that often. I read this because I turn 60 years old on the 27th and I found this little gem in your column. (Report) Reply
