Today, July 3rd, is Shoshannah Stern’s birthday. I wrote this birthday poem for her.

On the wings of courage to fly, a birthday poem for @Shoshannah7 by Tracy Diane Miller

If you listen with your heart, a joyous sound you will hear,
A sound meant just for you,
A song performed amongst the clouds,
As daylight comes into view.

The melody arranged by Heaven,
The notes so soothing and strong,
As the sun joins in the celebration,
And Nature is invited before too long.

The trees bow in reverence,
The birds chirp an aria in tune,
If you listen with your heart,
Your soul will memorize the melody very soon.

The sounds of compassion and hope
were never silent.
Alas, others assumed that you couldn’t hear the tune,
But you listened with your heart,
With unspoiled perfection to shine as brilliantly as the moon.

Undaunted you are.
On the wings of courage to fly, you soared towards the sky
where your dreams came into view,
The clouds smiled in satisfaction at the melody composed solely for you.

On the wings of courage to fly, you soared towards the sky
fueled by determination to defy all doubt,
As you shared with the world the gifts of your talent,
That essence of you so destined to come out.

Of words and of characters and of emotions,
The truth was there within your reach,
Generously you exposed your soul to the world,
The lesson of compassion you choose to teach.

On the wings of courage to fly, you soared towards the sky,
Then a Muse became privy to your story,
Then that same Muse communicated to a poet the words
to celebrate you, in the truest lyrical glory.

I am that poet who sees you,
and like the trees in reverence and the clouds that smile.
I write this poem in honor of you,
I pray that my words will sustain you for quite awhile.

On the wings of courage to fly, you soared towards the sky,
A poem hopes to convey,
The respect and admiration that I hold in my heart for you,
My best wishes on your birthday.
