A BIRTHDAY SONNET FOR YOU (POEM)

image

Today is your day
Tomorrow’s another’s day
So, don’t just give it away
But rather use it to pray

We’ll love to hear you sing
As to you our gifts we bring
But everyday just try to cling
To the God that makes you ring

Together we’ll celebrate
The God that has made us great
It isn’t a time to deliberate
But a moment to jubilate

So as the music is ready to play
I’ll love to say, “Happy Birthday”

    BIRTHDAYS ARE DAYS OF REMEMBERING HOW FAR GOD HAS BROUGHT US AND THE VARIOUS THINGS HE HAS BEEN DOING. ACCORDING TO THE POST, IT IS NOT A TIME TO DELIBERATE BUT TO JUBILATE AND BE GRATEFUL FOR THIS VARIOUS GOODIES IN OUR LIFE. OH LORD, MAY OUR BIRTHDAY ALWAYS OPEN OUR EYES TO YOUR LOVE AND PEACE.

    Well composed. It’s true, Birthdays should be special days of thanking God especially, for the breath of life, what He has done, and what He is yet to do for you. Not just eating, drinking and dancing alone. May His name be praised!

    My birthday is always the most exciting day of my life, because my God has always protected me and will always protect me nice post ma.

  • Very nice song! We should spend more time in praising and appreciating God rather than deliberating on things that are irrelevant.Let’s appreciate today and hope for tomorrow which is another day.

    It’s a beautiful birthday poem.Birthdays are always days to jubilate and celebrate indeed. They are meant to remind us of God’s unfailing protection and grace for each new year that has been added to our lives. The poet says it’s not a time to deliberate and that is so true unless you’re thinking of which gift to unwrap first. Lol. I just love the rhyming lines of the poem. Thanks for sharing ma’am
