Hello thirty-four, why do you stare at me so?
Do sit down and get to know me more.
We’re going to be friends for a year, if I’m lucky,
Stand by as we read another chapter in this story.

I have always been a feeler, but I hope to not overwhelm you.
I have always been a worrier, but I won’t make you one too.

I can be talkative and crack a joke and laugh hard, like me!
But like me even more when I slip into sorrow and just want to be.

I am impatient and judgemental, or so some people say
Don’t be so critical about me and wish my vices away.

I like to do things with my hands – make, mould or play
Hope you enjoy doing this, I usually like it my way.

Oh, I can get angry and cry out loud till my throat goes dry,
But see, inspite of it, thirty-three managed to get by.

As you grow old you will know about those who really matter,
They are wonderful people, and no matter what age will flatter.

Don’t worry thirty-four, be a sport and smile,
You’re special, and don’t come by every once in a while.

Perfect, why do I like her so much?
She’s just a stubborn old girl, you know
Who can’t hear her rippled bed talking of love
Who fervishly wipes out a child’s imagination on the wall
Who seasons the salad without stumbling upon a flavour
Who frowns at the unique pattern of an unsolved crossword
Who doesn’t let the short and tall boys mingle in the bookshelf
Who decorates the Christmas tree that doesn’t get a second look
Who takes that path to the garden without the budding rose plant
Who will never let her cupboard do its own thing sometimes

Perfect, let me not give her attention anymore
She’s just a stubborn old girl, you know
Who can’t sit still and let life pass happily by.
