birthday wishes

last night, batman put this little treat* down in front of me.
i inhaled a breath to blow out the candle
and a wave of emotion swept over me.

what i have wished for on every birthday 
for as long as i can remember


my eyes welled with tears and i looked 
across the table at batman.

i said,
"my wish has come true!"

and maybe his eyes glistened too.

what an astonishing thing,
to have a dream come true.

it is still hitting me,
nearly a year later.

i can't tell you what i wished for last night,
maybe it will come true, too.

*a treat from the bakery at King Arthur Flour.
