I recall when we were small
and time went by so fleetingly
with flashlight beams beneath our sheets
and story-telling into dreams

Every November, I remember
sharing a birthday month with you
theme-party planning over Halloween candy
and being so silly and free

How I miss the childhood bliss
imagination, a state of being
while never-ending play-pretending
was found and stayed and came to be

a ditty for my big sister, stephanie "blue roses" komashin
on her birthday (based on Japan's time zone)

Thanks so much, Kimmie! I appreciate this. And after all these years, I still think we "Taylor girls" throw the best themed birthday parties!
