Poem: Happy Birthday, My Darling

For a Lovely Kid

Four tall candles three little ones
Twenty-first is the day
I shall remember ‘til I’ve been summoned back to Heaven
You always have a place in my heart
Surrender all of you to me
We’ve made the vow to respect with spaces
to love faithfully
and to understand who we really are
I shall not betray if there comes a day we shall be apart
But I trust that we won’t

You are the man to cultivate the woman in me
Come hold me, come
No one, no one in this room but us
Cheek to cheek, arm to arm
Ambience dims to the lowest
The time has come for us
Leave the world behind
In this room of a strange plain scent
We haven’t done this for a long time
I kiss your mouth and say

“Happy birthday, my darling
My everything.”
