The day after the graduation
Visited the best friend at a college house
Got to catch up and had a spontaneous time
Was told to close my eyes
Was she going to pull a trick? What was happening?
Still heard people talking, music playing in the background
Open your eyes now, she said
Dark night, one candle on a cake
Everyone with big smile, all sang, "Happy Birthday"
Make a wish, she said
Overjoyed, I made a wish.
I turned 18.
