Birthday Letter Eleven Years On – Day 6 – GloNaPoWriMo 2019

Birthday  Letter  Eleven  Years  On  

 

If I could turn back the years

and have you here; your birthday

is tomorrow.

 

If I could talk with you again

and never talk of sorrow.

 

If you are still my first reader,

my editor; does that make this

any less a love poem?

 

If and what and where and when —

we had so much, the years rich,

if sometimes sad.

 

If I could turn back the years

And hold you in my arms again.

 

Not if, when on your birthday tomorrow.
