I wish you were here today
even for just a little while
so I could say Happy Birthday Mum
and see your beautiful smile.
The only gifts today will be
the gifts you left behind;
The laughter, joy and happiness…
precious memories…the best kind.
Today I’ll do my very best
to try and find a happy place…
struggling to hide my heavy heart
and the tears on my face.
I’ll sit quietly and look at your picture
thinking of you with love;
hoping you’re doing ok
in Heaven up above.
May the angels hold you close and
sing you a happy song…
and I’ll be sending wishes to you
today and all year long.
Happy Birthday Mum.
