Birthday Blues

Happy Birthday To Me

As I approach another birthday, I was feeling very sad for some unknown reason. I thought if I put it into what I like best, (poetic expression ) may be I can understand why I feel this way. As I read the news paper I see a lot of the people that I knew passing away not exactly due to old age but from just the passage of life

I know not where my blues come from

I just sometimes feel that I am on the run

when you feel life wasting away

it's very hard to face another day

 I think that its my birthdays blues

Like there is somthing I am about to lose

it's not the srtife, it's not my wife

maybe it is about my life

I run to try to catch the sun

something, some fun or just someone

who knows just what this birthday brings

a sort of closure of past dreams

as it approaches oh so near

it brings to me a sort of fear

 a cold feeling of the unknown

my life's expectancy is shown

just how long will it last

As i start to recall my bad, badd past

so my love, I love you dearly

and to try to show you this merely,

is just words written from sage

no emotion , no feelings of rage.

I guess just to turn another page

      Sorry to hear you have the Birthday blues. This coming year do something outrageous, something you really want to do or simply something new. The next year you will be able to say 'That was a good year and one to be remembered'

      Cheer up and chin up and go do something special. Happy Birthday.

      I can see where it would be depressing when you hear friends have passed on. However, life is to be celebrated! Make a list of all the things in life that have made you successful, happy and content. Do something extraordinary this year in celebration.... keep it sane though. Your poem is a good reflection of the ideas that hit many of us at a certain time in our life, but keep focused with your forward path. Happy Birthday!

      Hi Michael, a poem on a little sad note, as many of us reflect upon our lives at the time of our birthday. When we start to look back, count the years, what we have managed to chieve, and what not..but also it's a good time to be thankful for all our time spent here, every day in a way is a chance for a new beginning. Try to make your Birthday good, be happy that there are people around you who love you and care about you, and so do you. :-)
