Well Wishes & Half Hearted Kisses | Poetry

I will always remember your birthday
until i'm old and grey
when you become a distant memory
and my mind begins to fade away.

The date is forever marked yours,

you keep tripping me up and
making me pause.
you know each and every year I think of you but
I wonder if you think of me too.

You could never remember my birthday

so I finally drew the line
after 13 long years of
"don't worry, it's fine".
forgotten well wishes
made up with half hearted kisses.

I will always remember your birthday
even though you could never remember mine.
and I am desperately trying to forget it
and you
just like you forgot about me.
