Birthday Tea...

{Photos by Anna Eliza Tully} 

Thirty-four today.

And the day before, you went away
I baked your favourite chocolate cake
And we drank tea under overcast skies
we laughed and sang.
And then you had to go again
To another country, another foreign town
So I cried a little,
because letting you go means I have to trust it will be okay
and stand up,
when I feel I want to fall down...
And it means I won't kiss you on your birthday, today
it means missing your smile, touch, and your hands in mine
It means it's time.

Happy Birthday to my husband.

Whom I love, more, with every passing year.
