312. For Vivian On Her 21st

So I wish you happy birthday
on this your 21st
wishing you all the happiness
someone like you deserves

Though I am an ocean away
I wish I could be there
to hug you and join the celebrations
to show you that I care

I would buy you the best gift I could find
make you a delicious cake
with purple icing and decorations
the best I could create

So I wish you a happy birthday
may it be simply the best
on this day of happiness
I wish you to be truly blessed

A well articulated piece of poetry, insightfully penned with conviction. Beautiful poem on lust, seduction and vain glorification of beauty. I like the rhyme scheme of the piece. Thanks for sharing William. Please read my poem MANDELA - THE IMMORTAL ICON.
