Bon Voyage

Bon Voyage

A Poem by Abraham George

Dedicated to one Friend


Today morning, my star-

You’re looking more mature.

Oh my star! Bon voyage for-

Your next trip that starting today.

584 million miles around the sun.

Since you are my star I wish

To see you every morning so don’t

Stop travelling around the sun ever.


Like the sand through the hourglass,

So are the days of our lives.

Your age is just a number,
It’s really not all that big,
You have seen two decades,
Since you were just a kid.

You’re not a fallen angel, you’re

A star fell on this day years before.


A flower blossomed in late of spring.

Spreading it’s fragrance by words in strings.

Petals with emotions and feeling,

Dripping off as a drop of fire,

That can burn greenery in my heart.

I’m a greenskeeper- digging, planting

Pruning, trimming, and waiting for the

Beautiful smile of my flower


Let the candles that hold by the Cake

Brings the light to your life,

Light that will shine and can break through

Any glass, will bring you out of The Bowl.

Light guide us to those stones that-

Can be polished to a pure Diamond.

Let the light brings out the stones

In you ‘n’ let you live as a Diamond.


In this New Year I wish you all happiness.

For my beautiful dearest morning Star,

Wish you a Jumbled “Drippy Hay bath”

Interesting poem.....though I'm a bit puzzled by the use of language at some places....

for instance... "today morning".....seems odd, even poetically. Poets can mix words around, but then it should still "sound well".

Then, using these words, directly from a soap opera,
"Like the sand through the hourglass,
So are the days of our lives"

I'd say is a bit If a birthday poem is going to be special, I'd like someone to write original words, not use the words of others.

And lastly....I'm also not sure about the purpose of capital letters for cake, bowl, diamond and morning star.....the latter being a bit debatable, because if one refers to Venus or Sirius, it should be capitalized, though I'd say if I compare someone to just any star which shines in the morning, then "morning star" would suffice......

That's a nicely written birthday poem. I like the way you referred to your friend, or your love, as "My Star."
However, I'm not sure I understand the last line.

So many wonderful lines to quote. Happy birthday to the subject of your poem and I think you admire her.

Wow, I really enjoyed the way your wrote these lines, and I like how you keep referred to your (I'm guessing) friend or lover as "my star". Also I loved the lights "Light guide us to those stones that- Can be polished to pure Diamond", Love love love it :)
