happy birthday

for the last couple of days,
i've been checking my mail
three times and it became a habit
don't get the impression that
i was waiting around
you just left me anticipating more.
I walked to the mailbox today
i turned the key,
took a breath
i saw it
a yellow envelope
not like the colour the sun shown
that day we spent at the beach
but more like the yellow of freckle
i inherited from you.
the white sparkles
framed the words
i read it through
from side to side
up and down
I didn't get
was i missing something?
i didn't see you that day
and you said you wrote
but the only words you
bothered to put down where
i miss you, i love you
