Your Birthday


It was your birthday
I did not send you an email or a birthday wishes e-card
I just did not know what to say
There are millions of words
Millions of sentences can be created from words
But why
I could not create even one
My mind was stuck
I could only write this cliche sentence
“Happy birthday. All best wishes for you”
But I thought it was not enough for you
It was not enough to describe my feeling towards you
So I decided not to send you anything
If you happen to read this
I hope you will understand

Poem of the Day

poet Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

When the hours of Day are numbered,
And the voices of the Night
Wake the better soul, that slumbered,
To a holy, calm delight;

Ere the evening lamps are lighted,
