A Happy Birthday

My daughter pleased as punch
that she found
“the gift that keeps giving”
a bracelet with charms
to be added on
every special occasion-
she should know just being
remembered by her is
the gift that keeps giving

City BBQ with a friend,
Cheering our Colts to a win
and a perfect gift-
a writing journal

Great-nephew popping out
from his hiding place
and bursting into the
Happy Birthday song
then making cracks
about my old age

Hibachi dinner with
my sister,
talking and laughing
and a gift card for movies-
more fun to come
A birthday cupcake
with frosting piled high
and topped with sprinkles
One candle for a wish

Greetings from many-
All touch my heart
And make me feel loved

    What a sweet poem–and i like the “years keep adding up” just like the memories keep piling up, and the people for whom you care keep adding up…I think getting old isn’t so bad at all. Happy birthday!

    Nice that they can “make cracks” about your age. It shows you are surrounded by lovely people who know that age is only a number.
