Birthdays are a big deal to me -
Whether we are, here, there, or everywhere.
The day people were born is especially
a day worthy of celebration extraordinaire!
I have family in many-a continent and country
and it makes for happy rituals on a birthday
To wish the birthday person rather bluntly
HAPPY BIRTHDAY in Australia, Japan, Nepal, India, and the U.S.A.!
Now birthdays are forever lasting
They start at midnight in the land down under
And appropriately continentally contrasting
They end in Hawaii in all their splendor!
For your birthday that has already begun,
I wanted to take a moment to say -
Savor it, breathe it, and have a lot of fun,
And to you my love, I want to say Happy Birthday!
