Bam Bam Birthday

An engineer-to-be trying to find solace and solitude in writing.


Here comes the day..
A tribute, a celebration - Well, what can I say!
Fascinating me in your own charming way,
You’re the best, happy birthday !

Fresh are you, like a dewdrop on a leaflet,
It’s just with you that I can discuss Macbeth or Hamlet..
With your antics and puns, you sure do slay,
You’re the best, happy birthday !

You’re definitely not the sun, for sure not the moon,
Yet I’m sure, if need be, you’d fight any mad goon..
Owning a physique that stays just the same - be it August or May
You’re the best, happy birthday !

I’m hands down smarter than you, I think
But umpteen times have you outsmarted me, in a blink..
That I never lose a spelling to you, I pray,
You’re the best, happy birthday !

Couldn’t have asked for a dad, more nicer or wiser
Yet, when it comes to sharing chocolates, you’re no less than a miser..
Strong as steel, oh! Soft as clay,
You’re simply the best, happy …happy
Happy birthday !
