Birthday Celebrations

I hope you loved your present,
I had me in mind when I got it.
It’s the thought that counts,
I hear.

I hope your birthday was grand
while you cared and served me.
You should honor me every day
of the year.

I hope you enjoyed your treats
but I’m glad you got mine first.
No celebration is complete
without a fish.

I hope you don’t expect much
since it was only one day.
The others belong to me;
get my dish.
