Saw the prompt and a memory came so clearly to my mind.

I had a memory hit my brain
My hand full of birthday gifts
I was trying to hold a big balloon
Because my youngest was turning six
Just as I got my car door open
The balloon quickly flew away
I had to go back in the buy another
I wanted things to go his way
Now I am looking back...
Now my youngest is twenty-three
Has moved many miles away
I so treasure all the memories now
When I'm having a lonely day
I remember all their birthdays
All the cakes and bright balloons
Enjoy your kids when they are small
The grow up far too soon
Now my focus for birthdays
Goes to my three Grandchildren
They love toys and bright balloons
They're smiles are worth a million
