~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~ The Birthday Card ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~
I chose a card to send to you I stood there held it in my hand And read the words aloud inside "A Birthday Wish For My Best Friend"
I had so much more to say But couldn't say it any way Like how I miss you oh so much Your gentle smile and tender touch The days we laughed, the times we'd cry I wonder if you hear me sigh Now you hold another's hand That thought is more than I can stand
We had our chance together Those days were never ending So many promises Which one of us was just pretending I can't find a way To tell you all of this So I'll simply send my birthday wish And sign it With a single kiss
The verse inside is short and sweet The sort of thing that best friends say I'll seal it carefully with love And send it on it's way
If you knew how much I feel My bond with you so strong, so real Would your heart still beat with mine Or am I merely beating time If I thought for just one minute.. ...No, I see no future in it Will we ever live again? Could we be lovers, not just friends?
We had our chance together Those days were never ending So many promises One of us was not pretending I can't find a way To tell you all of this So I'll simply send my birthday wish And sign it With a single kiss ~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

Graham.....Your card was really good....I think you and I should both go to work for Hallmark...ya think?....Just think of all the people that would be looking for that Hallmark thinggie on the back of our cards?...We could come up with all kinds of creative stuff....Like; "For my birthday I want you to take off my blouse, take off my skirt, take off my bra and panties........... and promise never to wear them again!
Ala bam a
I didn't bring a present, I hope you understand, But poetry I've got plenty of, And my money is in demand, So have a happy birthday, And here's a thought for you to keep, Choose some friends along the way, Who aren't so broke and cheap!
on the threshold of a dream
Graham, don't let them tell you to work for Hallmark! Start your own greeting card company, hire us to work for you and pay us minimum wage!
Loved your poem! Now if everyone (redwriter1) would just sashay over the the Announcement Forum and let me know when the birthdays are I will be personally bake you a cake! We've got one coming on the 18th!
