This birthday card is dedicated to a drunk I was in love with who was still in love with the bottle and the addiction.
It is your birthday.
You were important to me.
I was not important to you.
That made me sad.
Saying good-bye to you
Made me glad.
Your being emotionally unavailable
Made it mandatory.
That was too too bad.
I picked your most favorite herb.
I planted it in a beautiful pot.
I did it with the love of My Higher Power.
The gift was from Him.
It healed my pain of bad choices to do this.
The gift is through Him to me
That you are no longer in my life.
I gave us both a birthday gift.
I perceive I will enjoy mine
How, or if, you enjoy yours
It not my business.
So long as you stay away.
If someday, you discover that
You want recovery
More than your addiction
You can give yourself a birthday gift.
You can have a new life.
