Instead of counting candles or tallying the years,
Contemplate your birthday now As your birthday nears.
Consider special people who love you, and who care.
And others who've enriched your life just by being there.
Think about the memories passing years can never mar
Experiences great & small,
That have made you who you are.
Another year is a happy gift so cut your cake and say,
"Instead of counting birthdays,
I count blessings every day!"
