A Birthday Poem for My Wife on Her Birthday

HERE AND NOW is what I’ve come to; it’s where I’ve landed; it’s what I’ve come to. Here and now is the only place I want to be.

You helped me find that; you helped me learn to find that space, that extra space the heart grows into because there’s always room for more love.

Your love makes me want to make the most of a moment.

(Hear Colm Wilkinson singing) THIS. IS. THE. MOHMENNT!!

(Are those tears of laughter or joy? Or both?)

I’M SO GLAD you are here and now; it’s the perfect place to be, here and now is. I’m so honored you chose me to share your here and nows with. (‘I’m so honored you chose me to be the one with whom you will share your here and nows.’ I think that’s better but it’s too long? Why take so much time with a sentence, you know what I mean?)

TODAY IS YOUR BIRTHDAY!!

(How old are you??…Younger than me. Right. Point made. Thank Youuu!)

Even though we are apart on this your special day, when I think on you, I feel like I’ve come home.

(Ladies and Gentlemen, Mister Colm Wilkinson)

HERE AND NOW I am sending you all of my

LOVE and MEGA BIRTHDAY WISHES

in a birthday poem for you on your birthday, which I have entitled,


“A BIRTHDAY POEM FOR MY WIFE ON HER BIRTHDAY!”


It’s a poem grateful for all of the perfect moments we’ve had and have yet to have had (is that even English??…I mean, come on!!!…sorry…where was I?…Right.)

Here and…now is a poem…(I don’t even kn—)

Look, here’s my point: Even if I only have one day more with you,

(Cue Wilkinson…again:)

ONE! DAY! MORE!!!!

(Dammitt, Colm!!!…Can you PLEASE?!…It’s my LAST. NERVE… Okay?!)

(Tears still? A kiss for both your eyes, then)


I WANT TO SPEND all of my days with you and have all of the ADVENTURES!


HERE AND NOW is what I’ve come to; it’s where I’ve landed; it’s what WE’VE come to. Here and now is the only place I want to be.


Happy Birthday, Wife! I love you!


ONE! DAY! MOOOOOOOORE!!!!!
