my birthday wish list

i want love

i want the world

i want someone to tell me they saw something that made them think of me

i want someone to care about me

as much as i care about them


I miss the ocean

and I miss the mountains, too

I never thought after all this time

I’d be missing you like I do.

But I missed the smell of spring

and that came back as always,

and I know someday you’ll miss me, too,

and it puts me in a haze.
