Birthday Blast

Hurry, hurry time is running out!
I just can’t be late; everyone is waiting!
Put on the make-up quickly, no procrastinating!
We have to leave. I can hear them shout
This will be the best night ever without a doubt!
The butterflies in my stomach are going crazy
I can feel the tears making my vision hazy
I never knew my family was so enormous
Oh my goodness the place looks gorgeous!
Surrounding me are lights, drinks, food and more
The music is loud and everyone is on the dance floor
Look at the stage! My aunt is going to sing!
I can’t hold back, I’m already crying
The song is beautiful and the lyrics are clever
I hope this night will last forever!
