HAPPY BIRTHDAY, MOM
Do you turn eighty one beyond the sun, could this be,
If you do not ever again age, then younger you stay, always.
I saw you yesterday in a lifetime of reality, you were mom,
This birthday of yours is different, we celebrate on our own,
A card we create with words only in our hearts, a February thought.
A cake and toys, balloons were a fun time when once a little girl,
There will be only a phone call in birthday memories that passed.
You can be seen through your children’s eyes from past days,
Happy birthday! Mom, a celebration in a beautiful place.
