BIRTHDAYS 

When you are surrounded by a table of those who love you
Who have given up everything at some point just for you to exist 
When all eyes are on you to blow out your candles 

And the tear drips from your eye

To put out the flame atop the homemade flan

Who said I would be feeling so empty 

Who decided that I would be waiting

For them 

That certain person to make everything better 

All I need is one moment for the spotlight to shine on another soul 

When I’m feeling so empty

I can’t keep the smile long enough to appease the eager faces among the sea of family

When I am surrounded by a table of those who love me

I ache to be around someone or something else
