Birthday Blues

I got a balloon, 
and another nail, 
a brand new wrinkle, 
an extra pain, 

a very bad back, 
and a pretty card, 
a kiss on the cheek, 
a walk in the park, 

a glimpse at the river, 
a smile and a wink, 
the sun through the clouds, 
and plenty of drinks 

a pair of headphones 
for Radiohead, 
a call from my mother 
to push me over the edge 

a fancy dinner 
with foreign beer, 
of all my fears, 

another year 
lost to the past, 
I always think 
this'll be my last.
