birthday bittersweet(to Sagal)

on this day

i wish for you to wake up

with warmth in the clouds

and without dreams that leave you in tears

let it be a day

of green tea sipped coolly

and no pain that blinds you

and maybe

at some point

i will send my good wishes

on a soft breeze

that would nestle against

the brown velvet of your cheeks

where my hands once found their Eden

may this year

and all the rest

be as beautiful

as you once were to me.
