I had been listening to SONG CYCLE, a record album by Van Dyke Parks when I wrote this. The words fit some of the music.

My mother's birthday was 12/4 but I always forgot it and thought is was 12/14, whe never seemed to mind that I forgot or maybe she just never said she minded. Eventually as an adult I could remember. Now I think of her on both days of December.
