Each year we mark the anniversary of our birth
Reflect on our standing blow candles check girth
We partake of communion with those that we love
Share essence freedom honor god above
We look for belonging under each rock
Search for home base where our key fits the lock
Opening our eyes to the truth of our life
While longing to quiet places of strife
Plans for the future dance in our head
Visioning next week next month years ahead
Clarifying purpose getting closer to source
Measuring activities avoiding remorse
Drinking in beauty and moving in grace
Using our words to slow down our pace
Standing in sweet air perfumed by a rose
Lingering attention over poetry and prose
Taking the time to tell those connected
Their honored presence keeps you resurrected
As you celebrate and humbly honor
Those surrounding you serving as mother and father
How do you mark the milestones of your life?
Do you just “party” or do you take adequate time for reflection?
What kind of changes or adjustments do you make?
How have they been useful in the past?
