Birthday Poem

Birthdays Continue Even After Death

My son's dad died when my son was just 5 years old. Birthdays are just one of many occasions that he really misses having his dad around.

Happy Birthday, Son

Though you cannot see me,
Just know that I am near,
Singing happy birthday
Softly in your ear.

I am always with you.
I'm never far away.
I would never miss the chance
To celebrate your 19th birthday.

Fourteen birthdays have passed
Since the day I died,
But for each one
I've been right by your side.

I've helped you blow out candles
And heard the wishes that you make.
I've watched you open up each gift
And seen you eat your birthday cake.

I've watched you grow into a man
As the years have passed by, son.
And I am so proud of you
For all that you have done.

You deserve the very best.
May all your dreams come true.
I'm leaving my eternal love
As my birthday gift to you.

Happy birthday, Son
Love, Dad
