Writing During Inappropriate Moments

The first two I’ve done before, but the last one is just for your amusement.

  1. Writing during family dinners.
  2. Writing during a lesson/lecture when a professor is trying to teach.
  3. Writing during an earthquake, tornado, and/or when the world is ending.

This is a testament to a writer’s willpower.

Happy Father’s Day Poem (With Rhyme)

Were you expecting a poem from me today? If you were that probably means you’ve been following my blog long enough to know I usually write poems for special occasions. I didn’t plan to pen a poem today but now that I’m writing this post, I guess I will be. See how quickly things change. In a matter of minutes I went from not planning to write a poem to deciding to write a poem.

Thank you to my one and only dad

You’ve been there even when things were bad

You supported me through thick and thin

You told me to never give up or give in

*

I just want to tell you

There’s so much I’ve been through

You made my life easier and better

I love you forever

*

We’ve shared laughs and stories

We’ve made many memories

Have a great time today

Happy Father’s Day

Personal Reflection

Happy Family Day! Happy Presidents’ Day!

Happy Family Day! (If that holiday pertains to you at all.)

If not, Happy President’s Day! (If, once again, this is any concern to you.)

Or should I just say happy Monday? Unless of course, it’s not Monday where you live since different places have different time zones, which is something I learned in a class I completely despised, but now that I think about it, I guess I did learn something…as much as I hate to admit it. I shall digress no further.

I hope you are able to spend some time with your family today or tonight regardless of whether or not you have Family Day where you live. And take a moment to honour/honor the prime ministers/presidents/leaders who have done great acts for your province/state/country/nation. You know what I mean.

And if you were wondering—although you probably weren’t—I did not happen to write a poem for either of the two holidays. There’s always next year.

Have a great one!

Wonderful People Of The World

Hey wonderful people of the world!

Know that someone, somewhere loves you.

I hope you love someone too whether that is your mother, a grandparent, your sister, a friend, your cousin, a teacher, etc. It’s okay if you don’t.

Even so, I want you to find something or someone you love. And love him or her or it forever.

That isn’t so hard, is it? That isn’t too much to ask for, right?

I know that Valentine’s Day was yesterday but that doesn’t mean you stop loving someone any less.

One of my teachers believe you have to “keep the love alive.” Well, let me be the first to tell you to keep the love alive year round.

Buy her chocolates on a day which has no particular significance. Cook him dinner as a surprise one night. I know the above examples were completely cliche and stereotypical but you know what I mean.

Love isn’t a one-day thing. Love isn’t supposed to be a short-term fling.

I have one last thing to say before I call it a day…

Stay wonderful.

Happy Birthday Poem (To All With Rhyme)

The number of people I know whose birthday it is today astounds me. Since I’m not going to dedicate a poem to each and every one of them, I’ll write a general piece for all of them. So to my brother, to a former classmate, and to an old friend…I wish you all the best along with anyone else who happens to be born on this day.

Happy Birthday Letters

I hope you know you mean a lot

I hope you find the things you sought

You are great the way you are

You shine just like a shooting star

*

People change when need be

But you can be you and I can be me

With so much left to discover

Let’s tear off the secret cover

*

Sometimes I am at a loss for words

As you triumph strongly onwards

To the many things that you teach

Cheers to the memories within our reach

Happy Birthday Poem With Rhyme (For Fan/Friend/Family)

Today is the birthday of someone who is a fan of mine, an old friend, and a close family member. Following tradition, it’s only fair this writer wrote a piece dedicated to someone who’s been there for her since the start.

This one is for you.

~Ed: Much love. Many thanks.~

You’ve seen me raw and exposed

You’ve watched me cool and composed

You always make me laugh

You’re like my other half

*

You’re the one who knows just how I feel

You can tell if what I say is real

We don’t need to fill the silence

Because we’ve established a perfect balance

*

We’re friends but we’re so much more

We’re tight but we continue to explore

And I know we’ll look back and say

Today wasn’t just an ordinary birthday

Happy Birthday Poem (For Mother With Rhyme)

I think we all need a break from NaNoWriMo or at least a break from my seemingly endless blog posts about NaNoWriMo. Below is a poem I want to dedicate to my one and only mother.

I don’t say this enough but I ought to: I love you mom.

Happy Birthday, Mom

Thanks for giving me such a great life

You’re a caring mother and a loving wife

Much love to you on this day

Bless your heart in every way

*

You watched me during my childhood

Making sure things would turn out as it should

I know a poem does not suffice

Each promise and every sacrifice

*

I’ll give you what you’ve given me

By being the best that I can be

Thank you for being honest and true

Your daughter will never stop loving you

Happy Birthday Poem (For Cousin With Rhyme)

Because of the success with my previous birthday poems, I decided to write another one—this time it’ll be dedicated to my older cousin.

AC: Happy birthday. Have a good one. Continue working hard.

Happy Birthday Cake + Candles

Congratulations on turning a year older

You’re now so much wiser

I’ve watched you grow up so tall

Remember when we were small

*

You’ve made me laugh pointlessly

As we wandered through our childhood aimlessly

I hope from each other we continue to learn

Don’t forget all those memories I still yearn

*

I know one day we’ll part ways

But until then we shall cherish these days

Happy birthday tonight

Live it up with delight
