    (for when your special day comes)

    brother/sister _____________

    your entrance into the world
    was as necessary as bone
    pushing through your mother's womb
    the ancestors guiding you thru
    to a safe journey

    special is the day you arrived
    your cry full of light and wisdom

    you are precious and beautiful
    as precious and beautiful
    as the last drop of drinkable water

    this is why i write my love for you
    in permanent ink
    on lavender stationery

    Happy Birthday!!

    Brother Clyde,

    I would love to write everyone a personalized birthday poem but that just isn't possible. So, I thought I would write a poem for everyone that they can read on their special day, if they so choose. Hoping you would understand though not written on your date it was still written with love.

    I got it TotalView, its a grand idea, I would just like to see you take it a step further, register the copyright and market the idea for consumption. Its a one-step card for the quick shopper that covers all bases, in my opinion.

    i'll be sure to remember this on October 13th...my 56th birthday.

    when you burst upon the scene
    i was pleased
    ...to read your dreams
    a black-and-white script
    i could sip
    one moment at a time
    and find laughter and joy
    in every nuance you employ
    in making dreams feel real

    allowing my heart to heal.

    like you.

    Thank you...and...Happy Birthday to you...as well, my friend.:)
