Reply to my Birthday Poem

Madeleine Weathers my counterpart, 
Have I told you how great thou art?

My day started with a bike ride down,

To the ocean of pacific renown. 
I waded in till my ankles could no longer take the chill,
And contemplated my fortieth with anticipation and thrill. 
Drinks and cooking ensued in steadfast celebration
And friends and family joined in with singing and satiation 
It's been truly marvellous
an episode to reckon,
A year ago I imagined myself here this very second
The universe has manifested my dreams so fair so true
But none as so majestic as the light that stems from you.
