To Those Celebrating Today…

Birthdays are special days

To savour and cherish

Everyone has a birth date

Everyone celebrates this day

Quietly or elaborately

Whichever way you choose to spend it

Know that it is your birthday

A reminder that you are still alive

A reminder that you are blessed

A reminder that you are privileged

To see yet another year

A special gift to YOU


Even when you pretend not to notice

And don’t care about your birthday

Still delight on this day

Spend it reflecting

Spend it happy no matter the situation

Spend it re-strategizing on new moves

For the New Age and New Year

Spend it believing more in hope

That because you’ve got life

You can do far better things

And accomplish more goals


You can’t touch the dial of birthdays

Nor apply brakes to stop them

Oh! You can’t even freeze time

So birthdays must come when they will

A special day and date for you every year

Though it reminds one of how time flies

And the slow process of aging

And the reality that the grave draws nearer

Welcome your birthday with open arms

Smile, laugh and dance

And thank God for yet another year

That is all to it

Anything else is an elaborate celebration

To everyone celebrating their Birthdays today

Happy Birthday to YOU!


Peace and Love!
