On Your Birthday

I can’t bake you a cake. I can’t send you a card.

I can’t shake your hand or give you a call.

All these things are still taboo. But everything passes and this will too.

You are a friend; not just an acquaintance. And there are other ways to convey my sentiments.

I know who you are. You know who I am. That's all that matters. What anyone else thinks, I don't give a damn.

Sometimes the lines of etiquette are blurred, but I'll still say happy birthday without feeling absurd.

So, let me send you the best pieces of me. Let me send you warm wishes and positive energy.
