To Mo,
Tomorrow is a distant place,
a dream that fades with the dreaming.
I will not wait until it is late to breathe these words.
In these words, there is life; a part of me,
a surge of my spirit soaring between your lips
As you read and smile to these minute marks
On this tender space.

Happy birthday,
Daughter of the city of rusty brown roofs,
scattered like broken bronze statues in the sun.
Daughter of the town where gods rise and fall
On broken pedestals of paper and ink,
Happy birthday.

Let these words find you
amidst a cut of chocolate cake,
ice cream and prayers from loved ones.
Let my wishes wrap you this eve
like the scent of roses and lilies
even as other wishes come from near and far.
As laughter fills you with light,
let my prayers for you rise with the light
to the stars, to refresh the night.

Happy birthday, my friend.
Let this day be the beginning of all things great,
the continuation of all things beautiful,
the culmination of all things blessed.
I wish you peace and happiness
among those other natty, sweet sticky wishes.

This is a bit belated. I was not aware and i can't blame my network enough. I hope you had a splendid day celebrating a new year? Abeg @mosunomotunde make i chop small cake o, if at all. My throat is parched.
