The Best Birthdays Were Beside You


One by one, year after year,

I struck off another place

I wanted to spend my birthday.

  • McDonalds
  • The Bowling Alley
  • Our Local Swimming Pool

every party, a carbon copy

of whoever’s birthday was last.


Then, there was a time

when the excitement of birthdays died

down, and the thought of getting older

scared me, because I knew I was

one step closer to a future

without you.


Now, every time my birthday

rolls around, I don’t focus

on the

  • wheres
  • whys


  • hows

There is no where else I’d rather spend

my birthday, than sitting on the beach with you.
