October Twenty Seven
 here we are again
thru all of our phases
you're still my best friend
and I get excited for your birthday 
as if it were my own
It's been this way year after year
from 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, 20
and all the way up to here
I'm so thankful for your life
and it's crazy how important this day is to me
even though you say, "it's just another day..."
and don't look forward to getting older
 but I always want to be a part of this day
I think and wonder what your plans will be
because I don't want to miss a thing
especially today
because it's your date of birth
your God given birth day
please believe me that everything you've done doesn't go unnoticed
from helping me take my first steps of independence
to taking me to see Mα»³a in Hollywood 
to your attempts of getting me JhenΓ© Aiko tickets
and all of those nights you stayed up talking to me
helping me to understand the sadness in my heart
like my broken family
or dealing with Adriana's death that still haunts me
you help me see the beauty in living
you help me see the beauty in me
hold on loosely but never let go
you've taught me that we need to be challenged 
in order to grow
2Pac, J. Cole, Kendrick, Atmosphere and Immortal Technique
funny how we rap to them when we feel defeat
or jammin' to The Lumineers coming back from SD (San Diego)
and all of the songs we sang going to AFTER'S
you always know how to make me happy
with the small and simple things
remember when I fell down at Venice Beach?
I just want to continue to make those memories
you dream big dreams
and I can see what you see
just know we are right behind you
my mother and me
did I tell you how much she loves you?
if she could give you everything you ever wanted
she'd do it in a heartbeat
I know that things haven't been the best or the easiest
but you tell me to always
DREAM. FOCUS. and BELIEVE.
happy birthday
