Happy Birthday (10/17/2017)

For the first time in my life,
You won’t be on the other end of the line.
Or the other end of in my arms.
Happy birthday.

They say it all the time.
That you’re always here.
Yes, I know that’s true,
but it’s just not the same here without you.

Happy sixty-five.
We’re singing to the sky.
I know you’re around but I always miss you.

For the first time in my life.
I won’t be hearing your brilliant laughter.
Or watching as you save a child with your smile.
Happy birthday.

You’ve played the biggest part in my dreams coming true.
I promised, the first person that I’d tell was you.
We’ll make it so loud, you can listen too.

Happy birthday.
I miss you.
Happy birthday.
