#Wednesdaythoughts Gibbous Moon and Happy Birthday #poems

Waning, Gibbous moon,
Broken yet proudly shining,
Facing morning sun,
Slowly shrinking into black
Ebbing then swelling once more
Like our lives, our hopes, our dreams.
****Happy Birthday

Be safe, be happy,
Wherever you are,
Laugh like the child you were,
Smile like the woman you became,
In my memories and my dreams,
You’re always there,
The other half of my youth,
The one who left too soon,
Be safe, be happy,
Wherever you are.
