MY BEST BIRTHDAY EVER
It was that day I got “the gift”
though it had no fancy bow,
nor was it wrapped in pretty paper
to hide what lay below.
It arrived with perfect timing,
though on a day I can’t recall;
but no matter, I truly adore it,
being the greatest one of all!
I failed to thank my father for it;
but, I did send Mom a card
on her birthday some years later,
plus, I hugged her really hard.
If not for her and Daddy,
I’d not be here to convey
my deepest heartfelt thanks
for the gift I got that day.
I would have thanked them then,
but I simply lacked the words
as I latched onto momma’s nipple,
like a nest-of-starving-birds!
