Birthday Blues

I'm all alone on this first day of May
with only pictures of you
I have so much to say
With a pen in my hand, I feel tied up inside
I want to let loose
the words I know I can't hide

Although you're in your twenties
to me you are brand new
The words "happy birthday"
aren't good enough for you

Will the year to come favor me with such fate
as to spend May 1st with you,
it's this I cogitate
Futures burn brighter when they're kindled with hope,
seal me up with your love
just like an envelope

Although you're in your twenties
to me you are brand new
The words "happy birthday"
aren't good enough for you
