The birth of a child is almost always celebrated.
It is the beginning of life for a new being.
Life filled with hope and possibilities;
Possibilities of what the child could be,
What it could achieve.
Today, I celebrate your birth!
Because it was the day the world received you.
The day you were destined to receive me.
You always forgot it was your birthday,
And I always enjoyed reminding you.
Waking you up with a cake and bottle of wine;
Never mind that it was too early to drink.
Singing happy birthday with our horrible voices.
Oh! How I miss those mornings!
So even though you are no longer here,
To wake you up and remind you it’s your birthday,
To share a piece of cake and early morning wine,
I still celebrate today!
Because the world had you for 63 years,
And I had you for 20+ years.
Happy Birthday Daddy!
You were God’s gift to me,
To your family and the world.
You were my first Love.
My true Love.
And I will always love and celebrate you.
