on my birthday

Standard

on my birthday

I look at you both with affection

my sisters

a reminiscent

of my parent’s existence

a constant reminder

that we were born

of the same love

between two people

who no longer stay

in the mortal world

our children

Standard

growing up

they

never leave our side

and

we have no time

for ourselves

until

one day

they go away

to make their own lives

and we

have all the unwanted time

in the world
