Birthday Girl

We slipped into this crazy world and wailed,
Now destined not to be the last we'd cry.
At parties we would spin and pin the tail
And watch balloons rise high into the sky.

All colored like the bubbles in a dream,
Now floating high and drifting out of view.
Bright faces glowed amidst the candle's gleam.
I wished a special wish that no one knew.

Out in the yard I watch the children play,
A party now three generations hence,
And sang with all to celebrate the day,
Now happy where balloons and wishes went.

I pray for them to see a day like this.
Perhaps my birthday girl will make that wish.

To a special "Birthday Girl"
Happy Birthday!

    Happy write for a birthday girl. Best wishes in Debbies contest Craig. One love. Joy Wells

    What a fabulous write Craig! Is this for Debby's contest? It would work perfectly for her contest! I just love the line, "Perhaps my birthday girl will make that wish." That say exactly what you mean, hope that she gets her wish for her birthday...very important for the birthday girl! And all the balloons throughout your write, is that a symbol for something else? Maybe wishes, to fly high? This is a remarkable poem, one worth reading over and over again(which I have by the way)! Great work!!
