    One of my favorites, I wrote it 2 years ago to celebrate my 31st birthday.
    I'm working on a new one for next month!

    31 flavors
    31 tears
    31 heartaches
    31 years
    31 associates
    31 friends
    31 negros
    31 mens
    31 yearnings
    31 satisfied
    31 trips you took to my thighs
    31 standups, and I don't mean comedy
    31 names I called you, all meaning sorry
    31 purposefully missed calls from you
    31 times I disappointed you
    31 instances where I made it right
    31 tulips in the moonlight
    31 fears that kept me up at night
    at least 31 times you came and held me tight
    31 ways to say I love you
    and 31 more ways to say it
    without opening my mouth...
    at least to speak
    31 times you'd shudder at the thought of me
    31 times you called me "mommie"
    31 times we thought of making love under the sun
    Hell, even Baskin Robbins has 31
    Here I am, in front of 31 candles on an ice cream cake
    Praising GOD for another day I wake
    This piece here, is a celebration of me
    and the joyous day in July
    I turn
    thirty O - N - E -

    Peace and blessings on another year.
