A moment of your time, is asked
on this most busy of all days,
I wonder, if you’ve forgotten?
Age is a funny thing,
making us laugh, at the wrong times,
reminding ourselves that we are only,
as young as the old person in the mirror,
and not a day forgotten, only filed away
in our sometimes forgetful
I would hope that if indeed
this day, your Birthday is,
you wouldn’t have forgotten
about me forgetting it?
I would of course, tell all
of my friends, not how inconsiderate
you were to forget,
but they are good at remembering
what you may have forgotten,
I hope, you have forgiven me
for not being the person, who you chose
to befriend, in the fond hope
that your birthday, remember I would?
Of which, I didn’t, you know…..
