Creative Writing- Today is my birthday

Today is my Birthday

My family came from far and wide.

There were best wishes and presents galore,

Just to be with my family I couldn’t ask for more.

Nothing compares to friendships renewed

as we shared stories of when we were young,

recalling the funny things said and done.


We had chicken, mash and chocolate cake.

A toast in the bar with drinks all round,

a shandy for me for old times’ sake.

The laughter and chat what a wonderful sound.


They raised the roof when they sang “Happy Birthday “.

I felt so special and loved

Tommy said such beautiful things about me,

I have the nicest friends and family a girl ever could.


We stayed in the hotel and what a treat to wake the next day,

To a full Irish breakfast and lots of tea.

Thanks to my family for such a wonderful day,

and for sharing my birthday with me.
