If I didn't know better,
would say you growing fast,
which makes me afraid,
that I will miss you bloom to the flower you are becoming.
Or maybe it's my protective instinct,
for I miss the experience of watching those I love heartily grow.
Or maybe it's because I miss you,
miss the beautiful smile you put on when you're happy,
and all the same I miss you anyway.
Today I put another time mark,
for as it is special day for you it is to me,
Happy birthday I say.
With a wish of a happy today,
and more of others I pray.
As you celebrate this day,
I call joy to befall your way,
even if you are far and away,
I must celebrate.
Happy Birthday my love.
May you have great moments
and capture the memories.
