A Day, A Year

There's this special day that comes once a year A day for that someone you hold so near A day where one's age increments by one A day when you're greeted by everyone It's the day when you're the talked about 'who' It's that day when the spotlight is on you It's that day you receive various greetings It's that day you can't seem to stop smiling This is when you express much gratitude A day that proves that you are much valued A day where food's simple or luxuriant There's a dish or two, or even variants A person then counts to serve as a cue A day they sing "Happy Birthday to you" A day I thank God for another year A year He's added for my daddy dear
