This Day Forever


Grow a sap in your palm for it is a birthday and you,follow your heart and I shall fly in eternity with you…

I laid there with the iced stars looking at a winter sky
A six and twenty days passed as the leaves turned dry
The pixies in aisle then took his name in a sprightly cry
And said thy angel is here ‘round now O’ goodness my!

I walked into him,then a boy just another my next door
A silent something said he brings life and a vision more
Dreams bare waited in a heart for years twelve and four
To meet this pirate who sailed home to reach my shore

I laid there in his arms looking at those fireworks rain
A moon less night and his shivers warmed up my vein
Colors of my skin turned wee scarlet and canary plain                       
Like his whispering bird I flew on those shoulders fain

I saw his happy feet jump on the puddled hill road
A world of mine gleamed in his eyes my only abode
With a river of dreams wild by his side in joy flowed
In the thickets green in search of treasures he strode

I laid there on mallows pink looking at my boy learn
A vow I made to hold his hands in every steep turn
Beyond and after the sun bursts in his last fiery burn
For a light at the end of a tunnel he always did yearn

I shall hold his blessings in my plume if all vile threw
Let the wild sweat on his forehead like drops of dew
An angel of no magic spells is he who made me new
'This day forever' is all I wish him in my prayers few

'HAPPY BIRTHDAY' 

-R.
