Dressed Pots & Pans
May I invite you at my table,
let me serve you food and wine,
let me get my special plates,
my long legged crystals, my shiny silverware.
Because today is a special day,
because today the sun came up,
because today the air filled our lungs with endless
amounts of air,
because today children were born from happy parents,
and because today I meet some friends.
Today is a special day because no-one died and
because parrots repeat what you tell them,
because there are cookies in the shape of flowers,
this is a day worth celebrating, a day worth happy faces,
worth our best dress our silk stockings our gold green Sunday shirt.
Today we don’t eat, we dine,
today we don’t walk, we dance,
today we don’t sleep, we dream,
today we don’t smile, we laugh,
today we don’t wear boots, we wear crystal Cinderellas,
today we celebrate life and we are dressed for the occasion.
Surprise your heart with your eyes and see that tomorrow will be another very special day...
