I don’t remember

any of my other

47 birthday wishes

but this year’s wish is different


I will always remember

my birthday wish for 1996

“I wish we still had our

life together with the love

we once shared”


I should probably wish

for something more realistic

like winning the lottery

but a life together with you

as lovers and best friends

would be worth more to me
