Birthday Poem

A Birthday Poem To A Very Dear Friend

This poem was written in honour of a very dear friend and neighbour who lives just across the street. She often pops in to make sure we are both okay, and if we need anything or anything needs doing, she is a real star. Without her, our lives would just not be the same.

Elaine's Sixty-Fifth Birthday

Published: January 2019

Sixty-five wonderful years, every one of them filled with love and laughter,
may all your fondest wishes come true, today and forever after.

We all celebrate the fact that you've reached this age.
Remember in your book of life, it's just another page.

So many more pages left for you to turn,
so much of this world that's left to learn.

You've been a good friend and always been there
over all the past years with helpfulness and care. 

So on this, your very special day,
there's only one more thing we'd both like to say,

that is to wish you all the happiness and joy that can be found,
and hope that for the next sixty-five years you're still around!



I didn’t realise what worldwide talent was out there until I stumbled on this very good website. I’ve always loved writing poetry and am inspired by some really mundane things in life and at other times very serious things and situations. Poetry can be funny and sad and can reflect the inner feelings of the poet and invoke those same emotions in the reader.
