You were a part of making me and I was going to get to meet you for the first time. You sent me a birthday card with horse stickers in it soon after I found out. Although I didn’t say to anyone other than my best friend, I did want to meet you and know who you were. You didn’t show up. I didn’t know when you were supposed to come but it didn’t matter because you didn’t bother.
