You now hold in your hands an all-purpose poem,
It’s here to tell you I care;
It’s got appreciation and remembrance
And more, all written to share.
If the calendar shows there’s a holiday coming
Consider this before the rest,
You’ve been noticed, recognized and greeted
With a prayer that you’ll be blessed.
Go ahead and celebrate whatever day it is,
Relax, enjoy with a smile;
We share a certain something, though undefined,
Friendship won’t go out of style.
I’m a person who believes in our Creator
And I am one who prays,
Thus you receive from time to time
My writing to brighten your days.
So, in honor of the up-coming observance,
To life’s meaning give thought;
It’s me, saying “Hi” to you in this greeting
And this is the poem I’ve wrought.
