Birthday Punches

A day much like any other
Rising and living just the same
Nothing different
Nothing changed
Yet greeted by wishes
And unexpected greetings
And half-hearted songs sung by half-awake teens
And candy and cards
These things that visit once a year
Placed up as a milestone
A marker of what is to come
A special day for a single soul
Another day for the world
Celebrated as another year of life
One minute to another
Makes all the difference
Happy Birthday
