I've been pondering on your special day
And dreaming up a gift,
Something that will touch your heart
Yet, something I can give.

For, here I am so very far
Too far to bake a cake,
No matter how delicious
For you I'd like to make.

Too far to have a visit
And take you out to tea,
To sit together in a cafe
And share a special treat.

Too far to bring a present
And watch while you unwrap,
A gift that I could choose
Your house to nicely match.

Yes, too far for that delight
But, for you I found this rose,
Representing how I feel
Just to let you always know.

My heart is with you on your day
With tender thoughts of love,
My prayer for you is somehow now
You will feel my gentle hug.

Soft whispers from
Derry's Heart Poems © April 2009
Poetry From The Heart

"A gathering of roses
God's gift of love for you.
May all your days be filled with joy
and all your dreams come true."

Happy Birthday!
