It's his first birthday after we fell apart,
I couldn't help but keep thinking how much has changed since,
I can still feel the happy tear that rolled down my cheek on his 18th birthday when I handed him his 18th gift.
For the past five years, this day would bring out the creative me, which was otherwise dormant.
Such excitement, never was I that excited ever since.
It's as though I'm standing in the same place, at the eye of a tornado, watching all the changes happening around me, powerless.
I realize the only control I have is over me, so I gather my strength, and begin mending the broken bits of my soul with the happy memories, for that's all I have.
Let the universe cease to exist, I'd still wish only the best for him ❣️
- A birthday wish that will be forgotten.
