I have a birthday wish for you today,
Although words are not always easy to say.
In some ways, it does not seem right,
That you are not here and have taken flight.
My heart aches, but I really do understand,
After all, I still have your hand.
I know you have dreams you wish to come true.
This is my wish, my dream for you.
May your happiness be complete,
So in this life your will not feel defeat.
From my heart with this poem,
I cannot wait until you come home.
