25 years

I am a man sleeping
Then waking
Seeing the sun brightening the day
Staying home
“I am off work today?”
Celebrating my birthday
Staying home drawing and talking
Waiting for my friends
Decorating everywhere
Baking a cake
Still waiting
Doesn’t seem like anyone is coming
Until I sit down
The doorbell rings
With my friends standing in front of me
We celebrate all day
Until night
