Today is my birthday, happy birthday to me!
40 years have gone by, a lot I did see.
But this is the weirdest birthday of them all.
Quarantined, alone, up against the wall.
No restaurants to go to or anyone to visit this year
No movie to make me laugh, scream, or shed a tear
The virus we can’t see it but we know it is there!
Cannot risk going out, for it is everywhere!
Thank you to all who reached out to me on the phone.
I know I’m not the only person to celebrate a birthday alone!
We cannot celebrate together. We must be smart and think twice.
Alone on my birthday is my small sacrifice.
We all have cabin fever. The weather invites. But stay inside!
I love you. Please, no one, take the covid-19 ride!
It’s my birthday, I am allowed one wish to come true,
I wish love, health, safety, to each and everyone of you.
