Birthday Gift Poem #5 |an Acrostic

…forward looking into the year ahead surrounded by the commanding mountains encasing the beautiful wine valley of Franschhoek (Western Cape, South Africa)

May your birthday be just the beginning of
A year filled with happy memories
A year filled with wonderful moments
A year filled with shining dreams

Beloved Beautiful Daughter of Zion

Think not of how old you are
Rather think of how blessed you are
Think of all the experiences you’ve had in life—both good and bad—that have brought you this far

B-be yourself
I-invite new challenges
R-recall past triumphs
T-trust your instincts
H-have faith in your abilities
D-desire only the best
A-affirm your strengths
Y-you have got what it takes

Afterword: This year my friends have given me the best gifts to commemorate the day of my birth—the gift of words in poetry. Being a logophile, words are precious to me. Words constitute the language my heart operates in. This piece is in full credit to Tshepo Kgadima.

    Birthdays are definitely a gift so celebrate it with joy. Words are an expression of our hearts desires so I can say your poems conveys that very well. In the words of the my fav musical artist, Michael Jackson, would say….”Enjoy yourself!” Continue to be blessed and be a blessing Dee.
