Birthdays are a celebration of beginning.
A celebration of an event that occurred on this day.
A celebration of a life worth living,
An anniversary for the opening of a new doorway.
An anniversary of young love grown old,
An anniversary for a flower once bloomed,
A celebration for fresh wrinkles to surely fold,
With the wisdom that with time have been consumed.
The longer you have been celebrating the year mark,
The greater reality and the past grow apart.
So no matter which journies you embark,
Be sure to keep that day alive in your heart!
