An Extravagant Gift

 

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.
