For Your Birthday - Whenever It Is

Happy Birthday


The perplexing poles of gratitude and regret,

Pictures in the mind we cannot forget,

Unwritten sonnets, unsung songs,

Unfulfilled wishes, un-righted wrongs.

Tempered and enveloped by words aptly spoken,

Mended hearts which once were broken,

Loves requited, love extended,

Hearts united, truth defended.

All of life is blended in a stew

Of all and everything that comes to you.

Blended and seasoned by all you believe,

Life is all your heart will receive …

By faith, willing, hopeful, and eager.

All that is impressive and all that is meager

Is life, and life is very, very good.

Have a happy, happy birthday. You should.
