  1. Present me with your presence
    My birthday – Gift
    by Rita Marie Recine
    ———————————————————————————

    I am a simple person ,
    I have no gifts to give
    I have no moneys to compare all I have is this poem to share

    I know this is not usually the norm.
    No need to conform

    I made a promise to myself so long ago,
    to have a party, no presents, music, food and drink was my request
    my gift will be you accepting my invitation as my guest

    Present me with your presence

    My birthday – Gift

    I will provide drinks, music and food
    fulfilling my b day with laughter and a good mood

    I have all the essentials for my home
    from mall to mall no need to roam.

    as I see you all united with me, friends and family

    Present me with your presence

    My birthday – Gift

    I glow

    My heart does grow

    similar to the sun’s rays … in a multi-hued of colors on bright sunny days

    A bouquet, an array of flowers

    I am graced with your presence, no need for a present

    We will eat and drink from morning to noon
    dance from sundown or until the appearance of the moon
    I am as happy as can be

    I am honoured with your presence, no need for a present

    I would like your well wishes
    Presents, gifts are very nice, a congratulations is all I need…
    Your presence is far more important, yes indeed
    I want you, to my celebration, my festivity
    to share my special day

    Sit, settle down, be kind to one another and rest

    your presence is my request

    you are the flowers, an array, my bouquet

    Present me with your presence

    My birthday – Gift

    No need to fuss, no need to go from mall to mall, wonder and see
    My wish today is to celebrate with me.

    I await and welcome your presence, not your present

    to my request please be my guest

    Present me with your presence

    My birthday – Gift

    Turn around, magical moments, turn the page,

    In the book of life this chapter never forget.

    together united, your presence of presents is the best

    The curtain has descended, it is now morn

    my birthday was a success,,, never could have asked for anything more

    The very best present, is you at the door!
