Happy Birthday

That moment when the hands of time stood still,

Beknownst to me, a salient star is born,

Brimming with joy from her head to her heel,

In a world prepossesed in angst and scorn;

I saw her for who she was to become,

Not even a single sane soul could compare,

With her beauty rendering Aphrodite numb,

And her mien as cold as Medussa’s stare;

Fifteen seeds festooned in her garden by God,

Fifteen years it took the first to germinate,

Umpteen fruits harvested from thy first pod,

Umpteen souls her Midas touch will make sate;

Really pleased blood strangled us with its ties,

Leaving us with good times and not goodbyes.
