Poem For A Friend's Birthday

I wrote this for my friend Kate on her birthday. We've been good friends for the past seven years and she means a lot to me. I don't get to see her much anymore because we've moved away from each other a couple of years ago. But we still stay in touch and she continues to play an important part in my life. This was just my way of telling her how much her friendship means to me.

A Birthday Poem For My Friend


Published by Family Friend Poems February 2009 with permission of the Author.

Today must be your birthday because the sun is shinning bright.   
The clouds that are usually hiding it are now nowhere in sight.
The birds are singing joyfully as they go happily on their way.
It's as if Mother Nature herself knew this was a very special day.

The day before was gloomy and the weather was pretty bad,
But on this day it all went away and now I don't feel so sad.
My sadness was replaced with happiness that wasn't there before.
Your birthday does this every year, so I hope you'll have many more.

Every year it has been this way since the day of your sweet birth,
And it's this day that makes me appreciate my time down here on earth.
My friendship with you grows each year, and I feel a special bond.
When this day no longer shines, I will know that you are gone.

Now that you have added another year to your years, may goodness and mercy of God be your portion.
