You've made your birthday gift:
You have rebuilt your life.
You anchored in at Anchorage
With a hankerin': be rife
With funds to function, in Boston town
Your environment preferred
Your partner close (and often closer)
After partner-time deferred.
This is your birthday gift:
From Anchorage to the Northeast
-- you hope enchantedly --
And settle in, to write and love
(And see some baseball live!)
Your gift is now to live life well
And -- you know it -- thrive.
I hope you've had a happy birthday, Lori. Best of the good luck when you return to Boston next month.
