it’s my birthday and if I had my wish
I’d get everything I got
a man I love and admire, who loves me, respects me and and tries every day to be a better man
children who have grown to be their own people
each who hold their head high
and have their own music that they dance this life to
a career rich and full of meaning
colleagues that I admire
a house that is a home
a sister who I treasure
a big fat silly bunny who hops after me for treats
a dog who can smile and throw sad eyes like a baby seal
a cat who is my constant companion
words that I still love to write and read
endless piles of books that clutter my shelves and end table
a grand piano that I dreamed of
enough money to make it
dreams that still light my soul
