Birthdays: A Poem

My daughter started writing poetry in the last couple of days -- not as an assignment or anything I solicited. I found her work to be beautiful, and of course watching her churn out verse, so naturally, reminds me of myself as a child. Here is "Birthdays."

birthdays, birthdays
always coming up
one minute
ah, all done
the next minute
ugh, what should we get?
one second later,
too late.
I was too slow.
