    Happy Birthday

    Today's your twenty-third birthday
    and I wish that I were with you,
    bit it's okay because I know you know
    how much I really miss you.
    We've had our share of fighting,
    but when things were at their worst,
    it was you I ran to talk to;
    it was you I needed first.
    When the boys would laugh and make me cry
    with the hurtful things they'd say,
    you'd hug me and you'd say to me,
    "You don't need them anyway."
    I wont forget the things you've done
    that have helped me through the years.
    I wont forget the times we've laughed
    or the times we've shed our tears.
    So I may not be there with you
    to celebrate this day,
    but you're in my heart and on my mind
    and I wish you a Happy Birthday.

    This is very nice. Was is also written for your daughter?

    Poetry is not an expression of the party line. It's that time of night, lying in bed, thinking what you really think, making the private world public, that's what the poet does.

    Allen Ginsberg (1926-1997) U.S. poet.
