In 2010, I wrote this poem for my husband on his birthday and now five years later, it’s time to pull it from the archives.  Happy Birthday, Mike…I’m so happy you were born!

“Truly You have formed my inmost being; You knit me in my mother’s womb. I give you thanks that I am fearfully, wonderfully made; wonderful are Your works” (Psalm 139:13-14).

Happy Birthday

Roars the wind.
Stirred from slumber,
crisp flora swirl
outside our window,
but only I hear their last.

Dark this night.
Gone the moon.

I want to tell you I love you.
But you sleep.

Gone your voice.
Gone the stars.
Where are they now?

God watches.
They’re in His Hands.

E.
