How I wished you lived closer.
For today is your birthday.
And today, if you lived in my street, I would knock on your door and give you a kiss.
And these flowers...
and invite you to tea.
And I before you came over I would bake you these cookies, from our lovely block of Toblerone that went spotty in the heat wave.
Then the boy would make you a delightful coffee.
And you and I would sit and chat and laugh and just enjoy being together...
in the same street.
I miss you. xx
