A Happy Birthday (a poem of inspiration)

Happy birthdays to all...
Happy birthdays to all...
May each day be better than the one before...
May each day be better than the one before...
A joyous day...sunny flower of a day...
A joyous day...sunny flower of a day...
One of many thousands more...
One of many thousands more...
Oh, sunny day...
Oh, sunny day...



One year older...a year when time means so much...of its essence,

A period in my life...that, when we hold on to each day...as our last.

A magical day...one of such poignant memories...its effervescence,

The fleeting thoughts in our mind...each valued moment, of the past.


True happiness...purest joy...to be alive and to thrive...still to overcome,

As we sit in pensive thought...reviewing yesterdays...as this day is done.

Our loved ones to recount our blessings and wishes of a happier new year,

Brings a unique feeling of just belonging...a family's appreciation...its cheer.


Thank you to my family, friends... all fond acquaintances...just for your care,

My knowing you are each a vital part of life...always in my heart...you're there.

What tomorrow may bring...today we may not know...or to realize its meaning,

The best in life... we live it now...each precious day...and in its fond convening.

Hope you had a good birthday! I love them. So many of my friends don't want to celebrate what they see as getting older. I love an excuse for a party or a meal out; I don't care if I'm getting older, I feel I'm getting wiser! Maybe not but I'm enjoying life and I hope there are many more happy returns.

Thoughtful poem, full of gentleness and thankfulness for family. Lovely.

What a beautiful verse of going through life. We review the past and we look into the future wondering what it will bring us. I voted it up++, shared and pinned it.
