"Dedication is not what others expect of you, it is what you can give to others."

"Dawn" - yes thats the name my dad gave me even before I was born...:) that thought itself makes me so special everyday and every moment...!!!!
"The dawn is not distant, nor is the night starless; love is eternal." ~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

I have been always treated special...and believe me am so lucky that I still get that treatment ...not only from my parents but my friends all over the world...:D
"My night has become a sunny dawn because of you" ~ Ibn Abbad
(This is for each friend of mine...)

Today is my birthday and its always been celebrated among friends and my parents...though I miss my parents on this day as ....I am not that often celebrating my b'days with them....but I do get there cards and phone wishes in advance through out till the b'day :)

"Love is not affectionate feeling, but a steady wish for the loved person's ultimate good as far as it can be obtained" ~ C.S. Lewis

My friends...I have a special place for them :) very near and dear and close to my heart :) ..!!! The feeling itself gives me so much pleasure and confidence and a feeling of being loved...a feeling of... people, there to care for me ...worry for me...:) guys, its a big thing believe me...I am just blessed and I always pray to God ...you have always given me enough...all I pray is just keep them with me always :)...too greedy isnt it >? :)

This picture always reminds me of my birth moment..:)...when my dad already decided for a name thinking it has to be a gal ;) and where my mom too anxious to know it is a gal :) its a emotional...uncertain....yet optimistic...:D yes...thats what this pic of dawn above speaks to me :)...

"Not knowing when the dawn will come, I open every door." ~ Emily Dickinson

I want to dedicate my today's post on my birthday for my loving friends all across the world.

"Death is not extinguishing the light; it is only putting out the lamp because the dawn has come." ~ Rabindranath Tagore

oh ! btw..."Happy Birthday To Me" .. ;)

"All the world is birthday cake, so take a piece, but not too much."

Happy Birthday Dear Dawn
Happy Birthday to you

Khuda kare zamane bhar ki khushiyaan aapka muqaddar hon..
Khuda aapke daaman ko khushiyon se theek usi tarah bhar de jaise ke us ne aasmaan ko kahkashaon aur sitaron se sajakar rakha hai.

Keshi said...

~~Just past dawn, the sun stands
with its heavy red head
in a black stanchion of trees,
waiting for someone to come
with his bucket
for the foamy white light,
and then a long day in the pasture.
I too spend my days grazing,
feasting on every green moment
till darkness calls,
and with the others
I walk away into the night,
swinging the little tin bell
of my name...~~

-Ted Kooser

A bday poem for u Dawn...
