Sue, Aurelia, like a bright northern sky
can’t help think of northern lights whenever you walk by
sweet Brenda, you have a voice like gravel?
may have mothered younger but you broke the mold
got an education that was better than the rest
hope that you and yours and theirs are forever blessed
I have no reservation
to making that request
you are my partner in some Golden Girls sitcom where
the races mix in and the pies are OJ’s
are the only one I ever told my shoe stories
would not have guessed that such a thing could happen had I not had this
how could I forget? You are the first one that I meet
you have always been so thoughtful, pleasant
I’ve never felt a burden or unwelcome or behind when I see you sitting there
hope your reception is great.
