Birthday Wishes

This birthday wish is not like any other

For it is placed on the wings of the wind

My lips whisper to a different realm

Happy Birthday Dad

I love you so

It is so hard to believe that you are not here

No card to buy

No gift to give

No telephone call

No visit


Yet my heart beats with the same wishes

Happy Birthday Dad

I love you so

Special delivery today from the wings of the wind

From me to you

A hug, a smile

Yes even a tear

Happy Birthday Day

I love you so

I miss your voice

Your hugs

Your kisses

I miss you calling me “Baby Girl”

I miss you so much Dad, not just today but always

Wind, please be strong and carry this message to the beyond

Swirl and dance and hold him tight

And whisper in his ear my love this night
