Another Birthday

The girl of yesteryear. Notice the painting behind me. That's my dad and the smaller painting within the painting itself is my mom.

My birthday tangos in
With the month of March
As I was born on the first
And thus I love spring
Cause it comes in my birth month
I must say that childhood birthdays
Brought me much joy
Now as mid-life has crept upon me
I’m much more melancholy
I so wish my dearest who have passed on
Especially mom and dad
Could still be here with me today
But I know they’ll be near by
My belief in the Lord has taught me this
As my birthday waltzes in
With the first winds of spring
And the snows start to become flowing spring rivers
I know that as long as I still feel
Younger than my years
It’s alright because I’m still that girl
Of all my yesteryears
So I can rejoice and look forward to another year
That the good Lord has given me
And I know that as long as I have great memories
What a fine day my birthday will be

With great appreciation and much thanks to the helpful and great HubPage staff. I’ve received my very first birthday present. They’ve awarded me with the Great HubPages Citizen Accolade and I can sincerely promise that I’ll continue to do my best for the HubPage community and remain true to my fellow Hubbers and read and comment on their Hubs which I always look forward to with great delight.

You and Manolie share the same birthday month although she has celebrated more than you have. It is a great month for you two, the onrush of spring. Mine is six months later, and almost the outrush of summer. One key we have in common: may the 12 months which have passed have been fulfilling, and the 12 months to come be better still. Nice to reminisce in a Hub, isn't it.

Thank you for commenting Perspycacious and you are so right about those 12 months. Can almost feel the inspiration starting to flow.
