A birthday: Far too long Poem by Gert Strydom


Far too long I have been wandering
in all seasons even summer and spring
and at times I have lost, at other times
I had experienced the kindness that you bring

and at times in vain
I have tried to conquer destiny with pain,
have just been struggling on
right through sunshine and rain

and suddenly my life has changed
almost as the divine had it rearranged
with the sun shining down warmly
on me once estranged

and at my birthday, my love is here
with tender care, more sweet and sincere.
