I wish you happiness...

I wish you joy
And see it coming your way;
And it is easy to let go
One who will be happy.
Your hope, your shape
Of the world
Once would have matched
So well with mine. Still,
No matter. You stand now
Grim with embarrassment
Admitting it – yes, you have
Enough to have enough
And contentment
Has caught your sleeve
While you were working hard;
Fixing this house,
Planting this garden.
Soon may there be
Enough and more,
And no more lonely days.
I can step back
Releasing my daydreams,
Letting you go.
It is better so.

A birthday poem, only one day late.

Happy belated returns of the day, beau p'tit chou...
