Blow out the candles

The boy doesn't want a party.

"The stub is on the counter. Also, my birthday is a somber time for me,
and I really don't want to celebrate it.
 I hope that doesn't throw a kink in your plans."

Ever  since his father died a handful of years ago he doesn't want to celebrate.

Every day of the year he is a man.

But for his birthday he is a boy again.

A boy who is sad.

And I don't know how to help.
