birthday, part 2: the smile cookie


tim horton’s
smile cookies


these little guys
make an appearance every year
right around zachary’s birthday

they are a reminder for me
of how fortunate we were


to live so close to a wonderful facility
that is prepared to handle
the tiniest and sickest patients


that it took only an ambulance
not a helicopter
to get the help he needed

that we could go home
and be back in 20 minutes
if need be

so if you frequent tim horton’s
or live near one

buy a smile cookie
for zachy
and all the other children like him
who have been helped
and all those who will be

(and because they’re really yummy!!)
