13 Years Young

Written by: Alli B.

"Happy Birthday to you!"
As the last bars are sung
the cake is brought out
13 candles shinning
on top waiting to be
wished upon. 
With one wind sweep
the candles no longer
gleam.  And with one
downward motion
of a sharp, silver utensil,
the cake is cut into 
many slices.  
The cake is gone
in one glup.  Presents
of many shapes,
sizes, and colors 
are brought out 
and opened carefully.
It's a lovely
13th birthday.
