Happy Birthday

Today you’re turning 17

I lost track of how many years ago
My hand landed on your face
Out of anger
Out of disappointment

We grow apart
Distanced by words

Now I guess we know better
The world turns bitter
and so do we sometimes
But our heart turns softer over time

I hope it’s true
What I have in mind
about who you’ve become

I wish you to be happy
and not to make the same mistake
that I once made

happy birthday
and be thankful just like any other day
