Its my birthday next week you know…
Yeah of course I know
It would please me much if you were there…
Yeah I know that as well
So will you come?
But what do I come as?
It’s not a costume party, you don’t have to dress up but…
Shut up you know what I mean
…you can come as Hermoine dressed in her Gryffindor uniform perhaps?
Be serious! You know what I mean!
No I don’t actually…
Who do I come as? In relation to you?
Do I have to spell it out then?
Come as part of the friendship that they can’t comprehend, a bond that only you and I understand,
As my biggest critic who keeps me honest,
The person I can achieve anything with when you are standing beside me,
The one I wish was on every one of my adventures.
Come as the girl who smiles through the pain,
Who my heart breaks for only to be rebuilt by your strength and courage,
Come as the reader, the writer, the swimmer, the hiker,
The sister, the daughter, the scrappy street fighter.
Come as the person I would miss the most if you didn’t,
The part of me that would be missing if you were not there.
But mostly come as all that makes you YOU,
The person I perhaps hardly even know but who I want to spend every minute learning…
