Birthday

Another three hundred and sixty-five day trip around the sun
To face the shimmering mirror in the still and silent pond
But not to test the wrinkles and create more ripples in her glass
See the growth of character and spirit in the iris of her beautiful soul
Do not question the errors that she might have made
Ask the lessons that have carved and chiselled her perspective
Have they taken residence within the bone of her structure and her being
Never a minute for nought in waste, except those of miserable regret
So celebrate and hold upon a lofty pedestal your mighty head
Lead forth the next year with the golden threads that weave your heart
And use the glorious honey that it blossoms for self as well as others
Leaving yesterday in flaky and fragile footprints of fickle dust
To blow upon the winds with fresh eyes and lightened wings of hope
Smile and travel forth the journey of deep breath and sunshine
Leading with intention and manifestation of the best life
A gift to offer to yourself every singled minute of your beating chest
