My Birthday... February 27

Rating: 5.0
Happy Birthday

Birthdays mean a lot to me and memories that I hold
This is the song that we hear, even when we are old

I am so happy, it's my birthday what else do I say
I thank my parents who brought me here in this world today

It seems now I've traveled from days when I was so young
It still echoes back to me when happy birthday is sung

Oh, how I remember my frilly frock, how dirty did it get
With chocolate icing over it, I simply cant forget

The backyard where the baskets hung with candies as a treat
Oh, how I recall the way we raced with our tiny little feet

The balloons and the cake, and the magic that filled the air
It was more like a Disney dream for my friends who were there

I didn't realize how time would fly and here I am today
Recalling memories of my past with my son every day

Once again it's time to celebrate, so blow your shiny horns
Let me dance to the music and rejoice that I am born....

This is a lovely reminiscence of your childhood birthday parties, very well expressed. I've rated the poem 10/10. Wishing you a very happy birthday today and many many more happy returns of the day. 'It still echoes back to me when happy birthday is sung' - True! 'I didn't realize how time would fly and here I am today Recalling memories of my past with my son every day' - a touch of sadness here! If only could we go back to our happy childhood days!
