It's Not My Birthday

It's not my birthday. 
It's just another day for Preston to know he's loved.
It's just another day for my wife to feel appreciated.
It's just another day for my family to know I'm working hard to stay here.
Longer. 
It's just another day that I take it all in and give more out.
It's just another day to walk in the line given.
Another day to birth thoughts.
Seed positively into the darkest dirt. 
It's not my birthday.
It's just another time among times on this journey.
It's just another opportunity to spread yourself thin and do so selflessly. 
It's just another group of seconds that form forever memories.
It's just another reason-to be a reason for someone or something.
It's just another day to battle on.
It's just another day to feed the troops and commence the war. 
It's just another day for light, for night.
It's just another day for breakfast bars and Bernstein Bears in the morning. 
For nuggets and grapes for dinner.
For a kiss goodnight and another day.
This is everything but my birthday.
