Birthday Cake

I know it was just an

Ice cream cake

 

But it really was so much more

 

It was the evisceration of all the sadness

Spanning two failed relationships sitting within my gut

 

It was the eradication of ten years worth of broken promises

 

It was the first heartbeat that knew that it was heard

 

It was just an ice cream cake

 

It was calories

 

And chocolate

 

It was just dessert  that said “happy birthday”

 

But to me

 

It was a sign that said

 

You cared when no one else would

 

It said you listened

 

When everyone else heard none

 

It said SELFLESSNESS

 

Because I knew you would never have a bite

 

It said that even though you wanted to give me more

You thought of me

 

It wasn’t until my 30th birthday

That I thought to myself

 

I am finally with a man that sincerely

loves me
