Day Marking Birth

Birthday cake candle lit marking off of another year
A chocolate filled iced tribute to life’s joys and sorrows
Experienced in the days between yesterday and today

Surrounded by family with love and giggles
An event full of shared memories painted with humor’s brush
Stories of what was once painful bring laughter’s tears

Gifts given wrapped in bright paper sprinkled with affection
Speak of familial understanding of the heart
Their gifts speaking more to personality than just a trinket

Strengthened with best wishes on the day marking birth
With arms surrounding and showered in kisses
The next year looks even brighter with promise and hope
