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

    for my long stay and conveyed (Report) Reply

Poem of the Day

poet Emily Jane Brontë

I am the only being whose doom
No tongue would ask no eye would mourn
I never caused a thought of gloom
A smile of joy since I was born

In secret pleasure - secret tears
