Happy 40th Birthday

I

In silence you agree

the children come first.

You dutifully make our home,

and keep us full of delicious food.

Your loyalty, comfort, and love is here.

II

Gifted in music and lyric

lost in song and her notes

So sociable when the language is familiar.

III

Me, your strongest critic

and biggest fan.

I’m enamored with all that is you:

Your patience

kindness

calmness

Our navigator and rescue squad

our resident doctor

groundskeeper

mechanic

chauffeur.

I love you, honor you,

blessed to know you and have a life with you.

An incredible guy, I say,

Have a much deserved and joyous birthday.

  1. Thank you so much for liking my poem Birthday Wish. I use it instead of just saying Happy Birthday to people. Feel free to share it and my blog. There are almost 300 poems there.
