HAPPY BIRTHDAYS:

 HAPPY BIRTHDAYS:
Today is my sons' birthday,
John who lives in Spain.
Above is the place he works,
Hope I get to visit again.

John, may your birthday be grand,
And all your wishes come true.
It goes without saying.
Dear thoughts will be with you.

Your dear wife Kelly,
Has her birthday on Saturday.
It's quite an expensive time.
Be that as it may.

When I lived in Spain)

Kelly you too have a wonderful birthday,
I will be thinking of the celebrations.
You will be having with your family,
From across the nation.

Two special people ,
Close to my heart.
May your respective birthdays,
Be great right from the very start.
Love mum xxx

WITH BATED BREATH:
With bated breath I picked up the phone.
And dialed the appropriate number.
You John, haven't conversed with me.
For quite a few weeks I seem to remember.

I hear the International dialing tone.
Then I heard your familiar voice.
"Hello Mum" you said to me.
How I did rejoice.

It appears I was texting you
Whilst you were at work and was busy.
You got reprimanded,
That's why you got in a tizzy.

I wished you a Happy Birthday,
You said it was a storm in a tea cup.
That you were coming to the UK in November,
And would certainly look me up.

Well I've been on cloud nine since then.
Hoping some day I will make it to Spain.
Let the waters flow along the "Peaceful Rivers"
Until we meet again.

  1. Awesome he is coming to visit you!
    Now you know why he blocked the texts. Just don't text during working hours now.
    Were the two of them doing something special for their joint birthdays?
