First they ignore you, then they laugh at you, then they fight you, then you win. - Gandhi

A child sits up in bed 

she reaches over to ledge by her head

she turns on a lamp thats next to a vase

A vase thats empty with a blue bird on it's base



The child sighs whispers a name

that belongs the ower of the vase

the vase that brought the ower fame

next to the vase is a letter in a case


A letter that said This is for you, wait alitle longer don't be bad.

and have a very happy brithday from your funny looking dad


She didn't want the vase, 

or money that came with his fame

she din't want the glass case,

she wanted him she thought 

softly cring and saying his name

Money is not everything some times the best present is being there to wish them happy brithday in person
