Happy Birthday

Today you would have been 67

Today I would have called to wish you a happy birthday

Today there would have been balloons and cake

Things to remind us that we had you for another year

I miss your laugh

I miss your jokes

I miss dancing with you

I miss your jabs

I miss being lovingly teased

It hurts so much 

That today of all days

You’re not here

No “happy birthday”

Just memories 

Of the last today when we still had you here
