Why should birthdays be celebrated?


Birthdays should be celebrated
To respect the gift of life
And to thank our parents
For bringing us into the world

Birthdays should be celebrated
So that our children may know
That living to the fullest
Does manifest the elusive meaning of life

Birthdays should be celebrated
To thank our friends
Who link us to the universe
In an infinite circle of love

Birthdays should be celebrated
As a carnival of life that marks
The bittersweet passing of time
As we hopefully, grow wiser and more loving!

    A very lovely poem, Anita. Too many times, I think, birthdays are simply milestones to gage how long we've been here. An excellent write. Thanks

If I should die, think only this of me:

That is for ever England. There shall be
In that rich earth a richer dust concealed;
