My Birthday came just the other day

It was a wonderful celebration that raced away.

Last year we had snow and sled down a Swiss mountain

Last year I had fondue, family and a proposal

This year I had a fondue, family and all the love from last

This year I had joy, life and a wedding ring on my finger

The poem below is a delightful poem that sums up love shared on a birthday...

A Birthday by Christina Rossetti

My heart is like a singing bird
Whose nest is in a water'd shoot;
My heart is like an apple-tree
Whose boughs are bent with thickset fruit;
My heart is like a rainbow shell
That paddles in a halcyon sea;
My heart is gladder than all these
Because my love is come to me.

Raise me a dais of silk and down;
Hang it with vair and purple dyes;
Carve it in doves and pomegranates,
And peacocks with a hundred eyes;
Work it in gold and silver grapes,
In leaves and silver fleurs-de-lys;
Because the birthday of my life
Is come, my love is come to me.
