Not This Year

Close is my birthday Dad
But I can only feel sad

Realization has finally hit.
And now with my pain I sit.

The nightmare is real.
My wounds they did not heal.

A day of celebration ahead
for once a day I dread.

Now that I come to understand
That you won't hold my hand

Tell me how to handle this
All I can do is reminisce.

I wish to hear your voice.
For us to rejoice.

Just a hug, another dance
Perhaps another chance.

But in the darkness I see
This year, you won't be with me.
