To be somebody is being remembered
On a very ordinary birthday,
By wife, children and grandchildren,
By family and friends,
By people near and far away,
Through e-cards, phone calls and text messages.
Being remembered on a birthday,
Is a token of love and appreciation,
Making you feel you are somebody.
But really, it is the person who remembers another person
And care enough to express his or her love
Who is somebody!
To be somebody is to forget about oneself
To remember our neighbour
And think about our other people’s need
