Typical ‘Happy’ Birthday Conversation

We’d had a good morning, considering we are currently in the midst of Tier 3 Covid restrictions, having found a place where we could (legally) sit in for a few coffees. In the afternoon, Jen and I sat in the car outside my daughter’s high school, waiting for her to come out.

Jen: I think we are going to have to go shopping once we get back

Me: Aw no

Jen: We haven’t got that much in

Me: Let’s leave it ’til tomorrow

Jen: It’ll be too much messing tomorrow, we’ve got a lot on

Me: We’ll go in the morning

Jen: Today would be better

Me: Naw, it’s my birthday today

Jen: Life doesn’t stop because it’s your birthday. I worked on my birthday

Me: I don’t want to go shopping on my birthday. It could be my last ever birthday. Some day it will be my last ever birthday

Jen: Then you’ll always remember it

Me: Not if death brings only sleep

  1. Death brings only sleep, some say
    but what of life and living, pray?
    Those left behind, what say they?
    Do they think all is lost?

    Death brings only sleep, perhaps
    but is that just a faithful lapse?
    Perhaps a failing brain synapse?
    A really heavy cost?

    Death brings only sleep, and yet
    Can anyone who cares forget?
    And will their minds be firmly set
    with fingers safely crossed?
