I SMILED THIS MORNING

I smiled this morning. For the first time in a very long time, I smiled. A month ago today you had a birthday, it was a big one, you turned thirty and I didn't remember until this morning. There was a time I'd have been incapable of forgetting your birthday. I would have planned for weeks to make sure everything was perfect just to watch it all go to hell and hear you laugh about it. But the truth is, you rarely cross my mind anymore.

I'm smiling now. I guess I'm finally over you.
