Two years old— I still
have the card you
gave me on my second
birthday. Shaped like
Winnie the Pooh as if you
had known that
would be our show. You both
were the Tiger and Piglet
to my Pooh Bear.
The eye-catching glitter
covering the 2 gets everywhere,
like I’m crying sparkles
whenever I see it.
Remembering the other
sixteen birthday cards
and thinking of how I
will forever and always see
your face in the Hallmark
card aisle. How you always
ensured everyone
got a card, no matter what.
You are
sitting on my heart
and will be “giggling
and wiggling” for years to come,
sending me a
“Hip-hip-POOH-ray” day.
