Send Emma a Birthday Card

I was inspired to write this bit of verse after learning of this young lady: 800 Cards for Emma's 8th Birthday
Updated: Now Emma's Army on Facebook and added to our Resources page.

Wise beyond her very few years

Hopes in birthday cards

Help cast away the fears

She knows something better

Down the road days ahead

Tomorrow never knows what road

Taken maybe forsaken

We travel on in silence

Lifting up burdens

Helping each others cares

Sending out recycled kindness

Light pierces through the dark night

Lost in fortune or fame

Road weary and struggling

Couldn’t we all say the same

So put a stamp on that letter

Make a selfless image

Send a prayer on a wing

Best hopes and wishes

Celebrate everything

Somebody

somebody to put up with me

somebody to take away the pain

somebody to bring joy

somebody special

more than somebody

not just anybody

somebody like you

somebody to keep me in line

somebody to make the time

somebody to say thank you

somebody to give thanks for

more than somebody

not just anybody

somebody like you

when somebody goes

nobody really knows

how someone feels

before it happens to them

more than somebody

not just anybody

somebody like you

hope you have somebody

somebody special

someone like you
