Air knocked out

my lungs, tickled.

Eyes blaze with


Balloons, candles,

a cake with cream.

Streamers, confetti,

blow the fire

request dreams.

A chorus of cheers,

smiles all around.

Center of attention,

imaginary crown

As I close my eyes

exhale. Candles silent.

Unexpected guests,

love, gifts, this

big event.

Friends, neighbors,

family, echos of

laughter. Close

knit companions,

there for me. My

special day.
