Each year an anniversary of birth
Reflect blow candles check our girth
Communicate with those we love
Share essence thank gods above

Opening eyes to truths of our life
Longing for quiet freedom no strife
Searching for home keys fit locks
Belonging under nooks and rocks

Plans for future dance in our head
Vision next week month years ahead
Clarifying purpose closer to source
Measure activities avoid remorse

Drinking in beauty moving with grace
Using self-talk to slow the pace
Standing in sweet air perfumed by roses
Lingering attention of poetry and proses

Taking time to tell those connected
Their presence keeps us resurrected
Rejoice celebrate humbly honor
Those serving us like mother and father

Do you mark the milestones of life partying, acknowledging, reflecting or all?

How have changes made after reflection been useful?
