Birthday Messages


I WANTED TO SAY IT WITH A BUNCH OF FLOWERS
A CARD WOULD HAVE SUFFICED.

I WANTED TO SAY IT WITH A PACK OF SWEETS
A' HI' WOULD HAVE SUFFICED.

I THOUGHT TO SEND A POETIC WISH.
POEMS ARE MEANT FOR MEN & WOMEN

DOES A POEM NEED A POEM FOR A WISH?
I WOULD SIMPLY SAY.....,

HAPPY BIRTHDAY !
************************************************
Morning I went to the church
The priest looked at me in awe
I never visit the church in mornings
"Father!"I tell him
"Today is her birthday"

On the way back the Sun I saw
Was shining brighter.
The birds flew high chirping love
I tell myself,"They might have known,
that today is her birthday"

All my friends were happy
For a dinner I gave as treat
A curious friend asked me why
"Dear"I tell him
"Today is her birthday"

I will never be dull even when the Sun is at West
For I knew very well
that I will live for the same day
to come again the years to follow
for this day will always be your birthday

HAPPY BIRTHDAY
************************************************
If you are married
your wife will be happy
for you were born this day.

If you are not married
Your parents will be happy
for you were born this day.

If you don't have parents
We will be happy as your friends
for you were born this day.

HAPPY BIRTHDAY
**************************************************
