Birthday Poem

A Milestone Birthday

My poem is one that celebrates a milestone birthday of a very dear friend who does not like to draw attention to himself nor does he like surprises. However, once in the midst of friends and family, he accepted birthday wishes and enjoyed the personal attention.

A Special Day

Published by Family Friend Poems January 2019 with permission of the Author.

Birthdays come and birthdays go,
And some mean more than most,
But you, my friend, dread all of them
And never wish to boast.

Just another day, you say,
But is that what you mean
When under all the negatives
Is there a different scene?

A night enjoyed with your close friends
Is a happy time for all.
With your charm and wit and funny tales,
You keep them on the ball.

Accepting gifts from those who care
Has never been your thing.
Although when given with much love,
You see the thoughts they bring.

So for this your milestone time of year,
Accept what comes your way
And share the joy you give to others
On this your three score ten and a half birthday!
