The tears are back

Happy birthday brother,
It's the big double digits
Your cake is yummy chocolate
It's been your favourite since six.

My baby brother it's a big day
I wish you could get presents
But your friends forget today
And mum's tears have drowned it.

I sing the song without their help
And look you in the eye
I wish I could see you smiling
And wish I wouldn't cry.

I take a piece of cake, it's too big for one
I put some in front of your face
I wait till you eat it up
But your face is frozen in place.

I'm starting to get frustrated
Telling you to eat and eat
I even get so angry and mad
That I stand from my tattered seat.

"Eat it now, it's your birthday!"
I yell and scream
But your face is mocking back at me
This fantasy is just another dream.

"Happy birthday my brother,
I hope you can see me now
I hope you're looking down from heaven
And notice my unhappy frown."

I eat my cake, sing the tune
And whisper one more goodbye
It's been months, I wish you didn't go
Today you're suppose to be alive.

I walk away from the photo I took
Why were you so unhappy that day?
I don't even have a photo of your happiness
For your special birthday.

** Written for my mothers brother who died at the age of 7.**
