A poem from a friend at work in honor of my birthday last weekend

At the shore's edge I picked up a shell.
I listened across the sounds of the ocean as the bells
of time glistened.
Years had come and years had gone -
the waves washing away each one.
I listened a little closer -
a new sound emerged from the shell...
The sound of many more happy years of all
that is good and well.
