Bittersweet 

There is much to be said about
Birthdays
For every year without fail
They knock on the door
To take and to give
Taking babies away
And giving children in return
Taking children away
Leaving teenagers in their place
Birthdays are for balloons
And cake and gifts and
Parties and
Celebrations
Birthdays are for
Memories
And birthdays will always be
Bittersweet
