No, I just don’t want to go to sleep,

I don’t want the day to end

Maybe I just don’t want tomorrow to start

Let me lose myself to gentle intoxication

Find myself floating away in random poetry

Complexity of prose

A pleasure so recently found

It is late, I should sleep

I don’t want to

I hate for this day to end

Unspectacular but so very much the present

Today I have enjoyed you for what you were

You could have been so much more

You could have been so much less

Thank you for simply being you

Today – happy birthday to me
