Today’s your birthday…
by Roxy Gonro
I never paid attention to your birthday before,
Never really cared,
It never really meant anything to me.
I never thought to call,
Never thought to send a card or present,
Never thought to visit and make memories that I could remember forever,
Never even knew it was your birthday.
I always knew you were there,
But didn’t think much else.
But today’s your birthday.
Now you’ve been gone for almost a year.
And each 365 days of this year.
I have thought of you,
Thought that if I could have just have 1 more day for you,
I would call,
I would send a present,
I would visit and make all the memories in the world,
I would count down the days till your birthday,
I would be with you, and realize,
You mean the world to me,
Always did, always will.
And without you,
So now I say for the first time…
