How I wish we could be heading out to celebrate your birthday.
Is there a party up in heaven
To celebrate today?
Did an angel frost a cake for you
Or sing to start your day?
We're celebrating you down here
As they must be above.
I truly hope your special day
Is filled with peace and love.
This day was always special
As we gathered round you here
We'd sing and laugh and celebrate
Your day with so much cheer,
I miss those special moments
That we shared throughout the years.
It's hard to find that on this day
my eyes fill up with tears.
I've tried so hard to smile for you
But ohhh...that empty chair*
I turn around and find myself
Still shocked that you're not there.
Please know that I'm thinking of you
As I go throughout each day.
this day is very special though
Because it's your birthday
