Happy Birthday To You
And, here is your present, a wish just for you.
Though I'm posting in public so others can see it too.
That's just a way so everyone will all know
that you are indeed special, as this poem will show.
It's strange I must say, as I type this sweet flow.
As I look at our friendship, and how it did grow.
It started quite oddly. I thought you were someone else.
But after a while, I placed that thought on a shelf.
Yet still, here we are. Two friends on this site.
I'm just glad that my rhymes are something you like.
Speaking of which, I don't get many requests
and this little rhyme here is done at your behest.
It's all for your birthday. It's such a small gift.
But it comes from my soul, which is often adrift.
August fourteenth, Two thousand - eleven
you came to this site like a present from heaven.
And in the short time that you've been around here
you've made many good friends. Eighty-three, so I hear.
You love all those questions, you've devolped quite the rapport
You've asked six hundred and two, and answered Four thousand-Sixty Four !
That's a whole lot of questions for any one here at all
and to do it in under a year is a feat not so small
When it comes to Experience, well you're no slouch their either
Two hundred and twenty groups, and I get the feel that's a teaser.
One hundred and seventy six stories disperesed all around
I can tell that your readers are never let down.
Your name is a number, and I feel that's a shame
I think you need a cool moniker that we all can proclaim.
But I still have one question something I just need to say
Why is it when I chat, do you seem to skitter away ?
All in all you've been friendly, even sent me a kiss once or twice
and though I tease by complaining, it's something I think of as nice.
It's all in good fun, the things most of us do
and those kisses I take as something special from you
So what does a man say when confronted with those
is he to fall in love right away, or should he act indisposed ?
I know it's your way, to help heal my wounds
But some cuts never close. Some things just consume.
Just as long as you know that I'm very resilient
And I hope that you realize working that in here was brilliant.
So now as I prepare to end this birthday rhyme
I want to say that I am glad for all of those times
When you've taken the time to read some of my things
and told me you liked them and say smiles they bring
it's what I most hope for from this one right here
A smile on your lips, that might last the whole year
So with the last line, I think it's fitting to say
I'm glad for our friendship, and HAPPY BIRTHDAY !
