A View From My Point

Many many moons ago

when we were young and the days would flow

from one art class into the next

who would have thought you’d see this in text

Happy Birthday Dear Old Scissor

don’t I wish I could hold up a mirror

to show you all the things I’ve thought

since we left school in year nought

How often I’ve thought of your cartoons

the way you’d draw constantly, not only pictures of spoons

but of people, the sea and lots of building crowded streets

plenty of boots, fruits and tables draped in sheets

with a line and shade you’d quickly represent

I always thought the way you did ‘white’ was an extreme talent

And now here we are with distance, time and life

between all these birthdays, lots of good and some strife

it’s good to be able to connect her in Cyberspace

to monitor you as you run to prepare for some race

So here’s a Special Wish to commemorate

all the years of Birthday Cake you have ate!

Many Many Happy Returns Of the Day

Hope you’ve made some good memories, got a chance to play

sat back and drank whatever poison you imbibe

and didn’t have to put up with any ‘you’re-too-skinny’ jibe

I’m sure you were showered with hugs and kisses from Matt

and now it’s time to keep smiling for another year of this and that.

  1. Nice poem. Beautifully written. 🙂

    • Thanks Arindam! This old friend of mine deserved something beautiful and you’ve validated it by commenting – thank you!

  2. Nicely done. Your friend should be happy with your poetic tribute.

    • I think she is, has been calling herself ‘famous’ for the last 3 days 😉 – I could get addicted to personal poetic tributes but I’d have to quit my day job/life!

      Thanks for stopping by mj!

so - what do you think? Not in general, just about THIS post:
