Over the years, I have written many poems for friends, family, and other loved ones. Some celebrate special occasions or love; while others, are just because. Here is another birthday poem:
How wonderful the sounds of laughter are, that I may compare them to a snowbird’s song.
Love to sing, love to hop, and dance the light of day away.
“Come and play”, “Tickle my back”, and “Scratch my belly”, too.
The heart as pure as snow, comes with a smile to warm your heart, and a touch to melt it.
The winter months bring these delights, as they brought you to me.
Just one hug, one more kiss, to never let you go.
For as you grow, so smart and beautiful, I will miss these days so.
Everyday, you get older; but, once a year, I realize just how old you are.
If only I could keep you small, for every day to come.
Yet, age will never end the love I have for you; for, I could only love you more with time.
And, every day I have you, I celebrate with pride. But, once again, this time a year, I get to share my Snowbird’s special day with others.
So, call out the snow, because…
When winter is near, I know your birthday is here.
