The day before a birthday .. 

by TarekOfCairo

Of all the raindrops
All the day lights
All the birthday gifts
and all the colorful boxes

Of All the smiles and
the love poems
Of all the hearty songs
and all the funny quotes

From all over the globe
and across all time zones
From deserts, plains, mountains and beaches…
From skyscrapers and roofless slums ..

Of all the cards in my mail ..
and the knocks on my heart..
The one I am really waiting for
Is not coming through …

And this is how I -helplessly- offend
nearly everyone I know in one go..
but still I remain gratefully thankful
To all of you  …
That I am sure
