Blowing out the birthday candles
by Shannon McEwen
No diamond rings
Or fancy cars
Forget about the
or endless wishes
With shiny wrapping
Is not required
Just show me
In a real way
that I matter

Sounds reasonable. There's an honesty about this that's well-told

Awww...isn't that what we all need? Not material rewards..just acceptance? So well said. Thank you!

A wish? A retrospective? Perusal of the list suggests it could be either, and this poses more questions than it answers -- the signature of good writing.

Short, simple...but quite the impact. Excellent closure in that last stanza; what I think...hope we all wish for.

I love how the style of the write matches the message. Simple, honest and true.
