~ Heaven's Birthday Gift ~

There's this very special blessing
On our birthday we'll receive,
If, we ponder on the beauty
Before, it's tender gift we need.

Oh, for oftentimes a birthday
Can be a lonesome thing,
Childhood families disappearing
Now, whoever else will sing.



So, a birthday comes and goes
Passing years seem somewhat sad,
Celebrating but a dream
And all that would be glad.

But, there is a way to cheer it
A gift that we can make,
To return to us a blessing
That will not spoil or fade.



If, we find ourselves a cozy corner
With, a notebook and a pen,
There, jot down secret beauties
And every precious friend.

Ponder long on little blessings
And mention gentle loves,
Imprint them on the mind
Until there is enough.



Then email everyone
Or, ring them on the phone,
A sweet and loving thank you,
Especially those alone.

And while ticking off the list
Lift praise to God above,
And soon this very special birthday
Will feel so full of love.



And then it will hold memories
Of beauty to hold near,
For emotions linking with events
Are kept for years and years.

A very blessed birthday
Will fill with heavenly light,
Overflowing all the gifts
Borne from the heart's delight.
