Birthday

by misty678

A time for sadness, and worse
A time to cry, a time to curse.


A routine now for many years
That linchpin of my varied fears.

My birthday comes no matter how
I try to stall and not allow.

A time to slip away to naught
The battle's lost,though bravely fought.

But strangely now it does not come
I am in no pain, I don't feel glum.

Spring is lovely, clear and warm
The winter's gloom it does transform.

To light and only dreams can hold
The flocks of birds, the fields of gold.

The future calls, I now can see
Just what it holds........

Since you loved me.

great read. i like the contrast you use. and the line"That linchpin of my varied fears." you make us understand your depression and the joy after you fell in love. the poem is well structured with the depression being expressed in the first four stanzas and the joy in the last four. this is a good poem.
