Elusive in memory is time’s moment.
Re-minds me of the American Dream
The sweetness of taste
Is momentum to continue
Young reveal the seconds
Old use a depth-gage
Fortunate need reminders
Loners are lying, to enjoy the bitter.
Moments mine, usually have a partner.
Always opposite of gender
Joy a reaction to a cleaver action
Scenery the sputal Canvas
Weather the influenced comfort
Sight, data processed
As art plays a soundtrack
Coffee shop laughter 
Mixes the rich, with dark flavor
Two center seated
Alone with ghosts
When I realized love
In a memory to come.

(inspired by the “Kings of Leon” song)

    This seems very deep to me. I don't know this song, but the writing of this birthday poem is quite mature.
