Birthday

Birthday

 

1.   Why did you come, dear Birthday?

I am no longer sixteen for my driving license,

No longer eighteen to run away from home

Or to fool around.

I am way passed my twenty-first,

If I like to order a drink.

 

2.   I don’t need you anymore:  you are a liability,

A debilitating memory, a shame to the living youth.

They still show re-runs of your comings on the screen.

People hiding in the dark, waiting to catch a stunned face

Sneaking through the door.  Surprise!

It is not funny for me:  no one ever surprised me

 

3.   Each year you come tapping on my door.

The month of May trails fragrance, pageantry and life.

Why May parade is cut short?

Why May never ends in pomp?

You’ve been consistent through the years,

The best and the worst.

 

      Sure, you are welcomed

Every year, any year, my friend.
