I chance upon a glance on my calendar,
And I realized – today you turned one.
I had to stop and put my thoughts together,
And wonder when and where time has gone.
In all honesty I am surprised – that’s an understatement.
For a year ago I was more doubtful than I intended.
Questioning every bit of myself, every brain compartment,
Like all the questioning was at all needed.
Yet here you are, here we are –
We’ve crossed a year together.
Give and take, comfort and comforted,
You’ve given me an escape, a home and more.
You’ve given me friendship all over the planet,
Some remaining faceless while others not so.
Some almost there occasionally – every now and then,
While some almost with me from dusk til dawn – electronically.
And today as I celebrate you turning one,
With a hope that we’ll have a year more,
I’d like to thank you and your visitors,
For dealing with the randomness – a mix of anything and everything.
