A Birthday Wish

A Birthday Wish


I never wished for a cake

though I never had one.

I only wanted a single food

that I can share with everyone.

I never wished for a candle

which later I will blow.

I only wanted warm smiles

that will surely glow.

I never wished for any gift

that will make me happy.

I only wanted your presence

which will complete me,

I never wished for a party

with fancy little hats.

I only wanted embraces

with a gentle pat.

I never wished for all of them

because I only wanted to be unleashed.

To see a presence of a father,

for me, that’s all a birthday wish.
