Wishful Birthday

Earth rotates around the sun,
a solid year has now begun.
Another birthday brings me gifts,
health, happiness, and higher lifts.

Breezes blow flames that have now passed,
along with lessons hearts surpass.
Loved ones fill candles on the cake,
to enhance all wishes I make.

Wish for mass healings to take place,
so all pollution is erased.
Hope every mouth savors and tastes,
prosperity in hunger’s place.

May ill felt will all disappear,
so unity could chase off fears.
Request for judgements to disband,
respect for all walks, hand in hand.

Last year’s big wish soon came to be,
many unmasked, pandemics eased.
If this year mimics with great gain,
every last life would never strain.

Envision all intentions made,
close both my eyes as scenes parade.
Blow candles out with a big smile,
absorb the joy pure love compiles.
