He brought home a single cupcake,
my favourite flavour, the perfect bake,
Lighting the lone candle,
he gave me an apprehensive look.
I know his intention to cheer me up
and I tear up,
knowing I could never be the same.
Thinking of the efforts he take these days,
Just to bring a single smile on my face,
How I wish I could forget
the pain of losing her,
my only child on my birthday!
Looks like, I’d never be able to get past this day,
without a reminder that on this gloomy day,
I’d lost the most beautiful part of my soul forever!
