Too much ado about birthdays? ? ?


.i had experience bdays...

on a hospital corridor...

doing nothing but..

battling bottled up emotions..

what had made me survive

some greetings from texters

here there and everywhere

i had too that birthday

inside a bus

nothing to sit on

i cling on a rail

and my feet ache

yet my heart is contented

for i am doing such..

for the benefit of many..

i had my birthday on..

a hospital bed..

surviving the pains

of an operation on my feet

whew what a heck i slept

and when i woke up

it was no longer my natal day

then i had a birthday

inside a church..and

the church goers sang

happy birthday to you...

and my soul leaps with joy

..then i had another one

a mass dedicated to my birthday..

and that makes me full

of God's graces..

now i am in a dream

where will my next birthday be?

in a comfort room?

in a beach?

in a hotel?

in a ship? or in heaven?

that only God knows.
