Yesteryear's memories still splattered on your board,
Of frenetic escapades and joy kept in store.
Lingering on your palette are hues of bygone bliss,
And heartfelt conversations, never to grow stiff.
Nestle in the cradle of this peaceful night,
Dust off your weary shoulders and wake to a brand new life.
As you inch towards adulthood, bear this in mind,
Hang on to your confidant, who devised this impeccable rhyme.
Birthdays we celebrate yearly, but friendships we nurture daily,
Drape a new canvas, splash a fresh color, and celebrate the trust we've found in each other.

I wrote this for a close friend on her birthday and had fun rhyming.
