You are a go-getter in your career,
Gladly on the crest of a wave,
Is that why you had to disappear,
On my birthday where I wished to rave?
Work was what kept you away,
But I patiently decided to wait,
With no presence of you in the doorway,
I simply stared at your nameplate.
A year ago, for the first time,
You had wished me at exact midnight,
The clock that seemed to gladly chime,
Now seems to know what’s right.
All I ever need is your precious time,
Says my tongue, sharp and swift,
But all that you ever gave me the next day,
Was just an extravagant gift.
