Happy Birthday


This time of year is so hard
Without you are here with me
My heart putting up a guard
Not allowing anyone in
While everyone is giving Thanks
While I try to hold back tears
As I always do this time of year
It's time of year for family
And it's your Birthday too
I sing a silent Birthday song
Special from me to you
Trying to celebrate Thanksgiving
And it's your 51st Birthday
Through my tears and heartbreak
It's the hardest thing I do
Coming to a end and tryong to begin a new
It is very hard daddy without you
I try to give thanks for all the time we had
But I am selfish and it makes me mad
That you went away
While I was begging for one more day
I know that you will be having
The greatest Thanksgiving and Birthday
Wrapped in God's powerful hands
While angels sing to a beautiful band
So Happy Thanksgiving and Birthday too
I am counting the days
I will be celebrating again with you

poet Dante Gabriel Rossetti

A little while a little love
The hour yet bears for thee and me
Who have not drawn the veil to see
If still our heaven be lit above.
Thou merely, at the day's last sigh,
