Convention by Sukasah Syahdan

Convention will fail us, grandma dear
One of these days, as another birthday is drawing near

I hope I can manage with a proper wish
on something you no longer cherish

And if I can’t help wishing you
a happy birthday anyway

Just look at me in the eyes
and see what I dare not say
