the one with reflection as i leave the 'teens' behind

I used to think birthdays were all about me
just me, it was my day

but they aren't
they are about the ones i love
the ones that love me

like my mom, who 
somehow was okay with carrying me all summer
my dad who changed all those 
'crappy' diapers

my grandparents who fawned over me
[i must admit i was a precious kid]

and my aunts and uncles
who love me even though i'm crazy sometimes
and my cousins who love me
because i am crazy

then there are friends
who are friends for reasons 
i can't even begin to fathom
