Brand new blue dress
Hair & nails done
She walks through the door
Over 20 people in the house
All for her special day.
60 years old is no regular accomplishment
I hug her
Take a whiff of expensive perfume.
They went all out for tonight
Family surrounding me
Flicking to the food, like chickens on a farm
The love getting spread, butter on toast
The decorations excited to be part of the fun
My grandma is happier than I ever seen her
Her hands communicate how pleased she is
“This is nice” “I love it” “I’m so happy”
“Happy Birthday ““Happy Birthday “ “Happy Birthday “
The cake tastes like heaven on earth
Nothing can beat it…
except for the smiles on everyone’s face.
