Count off the years, watch as they fly
deep birthday wishes flutter high.
Blow every candle on the cake
excited hopes swiftly awake.
Old hesitations, now believe,
arms open wide, learn to receive.
Inner desires find their way,
travel through thoughts, this special day.
No time or space on this birthday
true passions come without a sway.
Expectations do not deceive,
they manifest what hearts conceive.
Solid intentions, do not shake,
clear visions stay, to never break.
Close eyes so tight, exhale up high,
aware that years swiftly flow by.
Birthday’s provide greater wisdom,
gifts of foresight, knowledge prism.
Bright fruitful roads, finally earn,
dusty falls count as lessons learned.
Delightful faith inhales then blows,
magical flames dance as they glow.
Smiles greet visits from joyful tears,
grateful to savor this sweet year.
