Happy Birthday, My Dearest Friend
Poem By Lucas Liu
To Agnes-6th March 2005
My dearest friend, happy birthday!
I dare not send you more presents,
Nor dare I more my heart declare.
A little poem to show you I still care,
To lay my love, soul and dreams bare.
May your rosy cheeks smile today,
While the spring sun dances on your chestnut hair.
May your eyes the happiness say,
Like Venus at dawn trumpets mornings with glare.
May your sweetest love never delay,
To shower upon the one with whom a life you share.
Happy birthday, my dear, to God I pray,
I wish I could be there, but do you have room to spare?
So I celebrate your day here with a sorrowful tear.
As long as you’re happy, I shall be Okay.
