More than a Party

bday candles

Let’s hang the streamers
a rainbow of colors
then dress the tables
and add some flowers

Get the cake ready
for sweet, sweet frosting
and top it with candles
with everyone watching

What a day to remember
of wishes and laughter
yet many want the hands
of time to move faster

It’s the aging of souls
another turning of a page
focusing only on gray
they’d rather disengage

Each day, though, is but a gift
unlike “store bought” with dollars
Tomorrow makes no promise
for any of its followers

Let’s not take for granted
another chance to make a wish
Celebrate another year of life
and be happy we exist

Happy Birthday to my Hubby,
who is very grateful for another year
and his family is very grateful for him!
