Landon’s Birthday Poem 2017

Leave a comment

My dearest Landon
Such a sweet son
Simply loves everyone
Your life has just begun

Blessed with so many gifts
Overflowing with benefits
Unparalleled wits
The world has no limits

Melting hearts with your smile
For you I’d walk miles
As the sun points on the dial
I’m your loving dad all the while

I’ll carry your burdens with you
Even after you grew
From the nest you flew
I’ll see you through

I’m your strength when you need
Be there to sing you to sleep
Help you from bonds be freed
For you all my blood I’ll bleed

Birthday Poem: My Fire

Leave a comment

While words may not be enough
To describe how much love
I have for you my lovely wife
There’s one word that just might
Fire

Your spirit burns so bright
For people lost you are a light
Those shivering cold, you’re warmth
A warming glowing red hearth
A Fire

When I met you I saw it too
Made me want to get to know you
That warm smile and beautiful face
Drawn to you, into your embrace
Your Fire

My love for you exploded in joy
I knew I wanted every day to enjoy
Your love, your company, your heart
I never want to be a part
from, your Fire

Happy Birthday my love

Burn Bright always

My little heathen
Playful sweet mischievous

Happy Birthday
Presents, cake and play
Till you are delirious

We love you so
Always on the go
Ever bringing joy to us

We’ll hold your hand
Grow into a man
And live your life prosperous

My Baby Girl
My head’s a whirl
I can’t believe you’re thirteen

Growing so fast
Childhood is past
And now you’re a teenager

Shining so bright
Beautiful life
Spreading love and joy around

No challenges
Nor callouses
Could ever halt your journey

You’re so strong
The road is long
But I’ve no doubt you’ll endure

You’ll always have
You’re loving Dad
To support you every step

Birthday Poem for Matt

One of my students has been asking for a birthday poem all year. His birthday was this month so this is what I wrote him. 

Happy birthday!

You’re a man now

Go out in the world

And make it somehow
Some days will be tough

Others wonderful

Sometimes life’s exciting 

But other times it’s dull
Just be yourself and strive

To always grow and learn

Stay steady on the road of life

Navigate the twists and turns
Don’t ever be afraid to fail

Nor of being heartbroken

Hurts, hurdles and losses

Are the way we keep growing 
Be true to yourself and brace

Carry on no matter what happens

Be strong through storms

And you’ll find love, success and happiness

Taylor’s Birthday Poem 2017

In a world of yelling and noise
You bring peaceful quiet
When most prefer watching and pointing
You read and write
Many hustle, bustle, huff and puff
You take a restful nap
With much barking and howling of dogs
You’re a watchful cat
Far too many swell their chest and boast
You look within and know
Herds run whichever way fear directs
You’re wise enough not to go
Whole gardens have been choked by weeds
You’ve grown healthy and free
Groups forsake sight and choose blindness
You decided it’s important to see
It has been a great blessing to be
Part of your life
And I’m proud that for ever more
Your mother will be my wife
I celebrate all of the talks, chats and
Adventures we’ve had
More than any other honor
I’m grateful to be your dad

Bonus Birthday Poem for Eli: Champion

Leave a comment

Champion

Dragons roar
Bows bend
Steel swords sharply clang

Beasts in caves
Growl and snarl
Show their bloodied fangs

Battles rage
Enemies slain
And heroes succumb and fall

Damsels cry
In deep distress
A champion they call

Arrows fly
Tipped with flame
Deep into the night

Sending all
From their homes
Scurrying with fright

Who will help?
The meek and mild
Survive through the dark

Stop the world
From being torn
Savagely apart

Elijah will
Brave and strong
Protect those in need

Noble and pure
His sword will set
The innocent free
