Birthday Poem

Birthday Wishes To Last The Whole Year

I once missed my cousin Julie's birthday. It wasn't until the last minute I remembered, but the only card I had didn't have a verse, so I had to write my own. She loved it.

Sister Beryl, I do believe words from your own heart mean so much more. They are priceless.

Missed Birthday

I'm so sorry I missed your birthday.
A special day, I know it's true.
But birthdays are only here one day,
And I love you the whole year through.

Birthday cards are only pieces of paper,
Verses written by someone we never knew.
How could they ever truly explain
All the feelings I have for you?

So I've bought a card without any verse
As I wanted to write one of my own
To let you know what you really mean to me
And not words from someone unknown.

Yes, birthday cards are just pieces of paper
That we read then just put away,
But my love for you is forever,
And forever means now and always.
