Another candle,
another dream.
Birthday moments,
flow down the stream.

No way to stop it,
no way to pause.
Enjoy while it lasts,
accept all its flaws.

You’re a fish in the stream,
we focus on you.
How much you have aged,
or how much you grew.

Bathing in moments,
seems like a blink.
To stop the stream,
beginning to think.

Another nice birthday,
there’s always next year.
How to freeze this one,
it’s obviously clear.

In all the moments,
joyfully soak.
The stream shall pause,
when memories evoke.
