Written Works Collection: Poetry
From time to time, I like to share some of the things I have written. I write poetry most of the time at the spur of the moment. I wrote this poem with someone in mind that I know. This person chose to isolate himself and is now living a lonely life.
It Is My Birthday Today
It is my birthday today, yet, who besides me, will celebrate?
I had almost forgotten it was my day
I remember happier times with loved ones near
But, now, it is a very lonely year
Why is that I wonder? Way too much to ponder
My life is passing me by, I hold back tears, I will not cry!
It is my birthday today, another year of life
I must be thankful for that, and not look back
The candles on the cake are melting
I sing myself happy birthday
What have I done? No one remembers I was born
But I am the only one to blame, I pushed them all away
It is my birthday today, I wish it was like yesterday
Family and friends all around
Loving and laughter filling the house
I will go to bed now, hugging my pillow
Counting sheep, longing for sleep
Today will be over soon
