Sharing birth dates

as we do

it’s unlikely I shall ever be allowed

to truly forget him.


Other thoughts

other people

will crowd the rest of my days

excluding him

until our day of celebration arrives

and that moment

of bending over my candles

I forget to make my wish.


I’ll wonder

whose eyes are meeting his

across their lovely light.
