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
