Parking Lot Boogie

I’m so sad mom That I’m missing the chance To be with you on your birthday and to watch you dance Yet your spirit I admire You’ll celebrate with style With friends in a parking lot You’ll boogie for a while Enjoy your special night even if it’s a bit chilly Let others ponder the magic of being silly You are so amazing the youngest eighty I know The music stills moves you Whether it’s fast or slow So open all the windows of your shiny Ford Escape Fly to the sound of the Radio my hero without a cape May the night skies twinkle to the sound of the beat and the pavement marvel at the movement of your feet For you my dear mom are a one of a kind and I’ll be there dancing with you Even though it’s just in my mind. I love you mom Happy Eightieth Birthday! May 18th, 2020 I also want to do a shoutout to my friend Eileen Manassian who shares the same birthday as my mom. I hope you have an amazing day Eileen. My friends, please drop by and wish Eileen a Happy Happy Birthday! The added bonus is that you will get to read her amazing poetry.

This is beautiful and heartfelt. My son's birthday is coming up, however it's also on the day my biological mother passed away. I will celebrate with my son birthday outloud, and find a way to embrace my mom through thought. Happy Birthday, to your mom, spiritually and a Big happy birthday to Eileen, outloud. Always a pleasure. Linda

Your mom sounds like one of a kind - and quite a dancer too - and thank you for the tip on Eileen's poetry as well.

Hi Richard, I think in one of my previous poems I mentioned that my son's name is Ricky, some call him Rick - we are very close as it seems you are with your mother and I loved this poem SO MUCH - I have saved and faved it. Blessings Jennifer. P.S. Hope you mom had an awesome birthday.

Your great question to me. I copied the answer here as well: "Richard, that's easy: Absolutely not! Peter denied Jesus thrice, with curses, "I do not know [jesus] that man." He had to wait for the Resurrection to be SAVED, no one was saved before that, just in a "holding pattern." Jews use SHEOL & Greeks, "HADES." Nothell, Waiting station $Jesus as with LL born b4 Jesus 2K yrs ago. Judas didnt wait 4 the Resurrection & committed suicide. WHY?He's the modern man: taking matters in his own hands

Would that not mean that all people who lived and died before Jesus’s resurrection are doomed?

I read this MOM's poem yesterday; U have lots of visitors & friends. They said it all; I did not want to overdo the sentiments. YOU ARE BOTH SO BLESSED; praise our Saviour, Glory to God. Hosanna.

Wow born in 1940, a teen with 'Rock 'n' Roll. Into the very best era of all, and a son a poetic genius too. Can't get much better than that....Happy Birthday to your Mam, Richard..

Sorry to hear that. I lost my dad at 57 and it was disconcerting when I hit the same age.

Oh Richard!!! How sweet of you to mention me here. I'm honored. :) You've added so much to my day. I posted a bday greeting to your lovely Mama on her FB page and in a personal note. She's amazing. After all...she brought you into the world and raised you to be who you are today. This poem is a lovely tribute to her. :) Again...thanks for spreading the cheer! Hugs

Thanks for giving a second look on my Music poem... some times things hit you different another go round. In my own personal experience, I find it's the music that plays you. Lol.
