i don't remember
ever buying you
a birthday gift

we never felt
the need
to be demonstrative

we had no

obligations
you didn't have

to take my call
if you didn't feel like
and i would know

we
just knew

you turn 25 today
if you were around
i would've called you

and amused you
with my latest stories

but maybe
you already know.

Sigh.

Ramya, I can sense the pain here. These lines are oft thought in my mind when I miss people who had been there and have now gone and left a vacant spot which can never be filled.

Hope you are fine. It has been long since I came by so I thought I would visit. Take care.

Joy always,
Susan
