Dead In The Center

A birthday cake

I baked you a cake


With sugar and sprinkles


I knew it was your Birthday


A Very Special Affair


I put one candle


Dead in the center


Glancing at the Empty Chair


I realized you weren’t there


Old habits are hard to break


When it comes to Birthday Cake


Mesmerized by the flicker of the flame


I could almost hear you call my name


Tears welled up and put out the candle


Happy Birthday to you, Mommie


I Put Your piece in the freezer
