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!

Happy Birthday, Honey! ♥

I’m wishing my Husband a wonderful Birthday today
and many more years of happiness with
the kids and I.
Below, is one of my favorites I wrote for him last December~

Cloud 9

Can you believe we’re “you and I?”
I’m still amazed that you’re my guy
How you fell in love with me
and how we came to be
I’ll never know just what I said
what I did to make you trip
I’m just glad I caught you then,
Do you remember when…
We danced all night and closed the doors
You held me tight and I was yours
The music stopped; our hearts kept beat
The tempo followed our graceful feet
You gently swept me off the floor
and I kept going back for more
Your loving whispers melted me
Our kiss good night lifted me
to a place I never thought I’d find
I’m finally where I want to be…
A lovely view
from the divine cloud nine

I re-blogged this, then deleted it
and honestly, wasn’t sure if that was correct
or if copying it this way is the right way~ 🙂
