DESTINY

It was a warm summer day
In a land far away
You had an accident
And I was there.

Who would have thought
That an accidental meeting
Would bring us together.
To share our lives forever.

Movies, lunches, and dinners
A few dates is all it took.
We had obstacles in our way
We nearly went our ways.

It has been many years.
I have sometimes looked back
And wondered what may have been
If our paths had not entwined

But I have to look forward
And stay on the right track.
I know it is said
Fate has a part to play
I am so glad it did that day.

Happy Birthday "J" I am glad you came my way.

OHHh!! Finally,the Day is here!! Well, Happy Birthday!! So, what did you get?? Whens yours though??

starry nights 9:28 AM  

Mine is in June. I am having a surprise birthday party for him to-morrow. I am really not well but my family arranged it. he does not know.I would really like to take him to egypt because he is crazy about egyptian history. maybe next year when I am well it will happen. have a good weekend Neer. We really cannot buy him a present because invariably it is returned.either he thought it was too expensive or it did not fit.

More than a gift, make his day special, make something special and that is all that matters.
