Carpe diem is a Latin expression that means "seize the day." Carpe diem poems have the theme of living for today.
It's party time and everyone
has brought a gift to me.
My children bring their smiles
and laughter, wrapped and ready, spilling from the box.

with bright bows atop.
My Father brings eternity and peace
and rest it in his arms, cradling
I on the other hand wanted the perfect party dress...
and remain closed in the bedroom.
Too saddened by my shoddy garb
