Theme: Birthday

When The Clock Struck Twelve


Last night when the clock struck twelve,
She sat on the swing in her verandah
And called him to wish him on his birthday;
She was as excited as she would be in her own!
The phone was busy but then he called her back,
Overjoyed, she said “Happiiieeee Birthdayyyyyy”
And then he sang “Happy Birthday to me”
She accompanied singing “Happy Birthday to you”!
It was just perfect, what a charming night,
Only he and she, nothing else on the site.
The stillness of the midnight was magical,
Under the starry sky she saw his lovely face!
His voice echoed in her ears ever since,
How she wished forever to cling to him,
Being in a separate state, she was helpless,
She could only have sweet fantasy and honeyed dream!
She lit an oil lamp in front of The Almighty
As she would have done on her Birthday,
She prayed for his happiness and peace,
Good health, success and love’s bliss!
