Hey! Don’t mess my cake with the candles
Oh, you want to hide your age!
No. I want to highlight the cake
By the way how old are you?
You mean to say how much I have lived?
Yeah…are you 43 or 44..
Nah…I am much older than this
Oh really! So what’s your real age?
I think I’m ten rainbows old
Maybe thousands of sunrises
Sunsets are much more
You can add five thousand rains
I’m sorry couldn’t count the stars
But moons would be ten times thousand
Oceans, river and mountains one full fist
Add seasons, festivals and the picnics
Don’t forget my friends and family
Uff! I can’t tell you my exact age
You know I am very poor with math
Let it be whatever you what to believe
Just don’t put candles on the cake
Life tastes good when you stop counting the age!
