Happy Birthday

By:Ashlee Zlotnick

Today you were meant to be the birthday boy,

but you are no longer with us today.

Your family and friends celebrate without you, owy.

Where ever you are, your birthday is underway.


19 is the age you were meant to be.

Your sister was supposed to bake you a cake.

Opening up presents from your family and me.

That birthday smile, I will never be able to remake.


On Saturday we would have had a party,

with all your loved ones there.

Your personality would be joys like Smarties.

I wonder what time it would have been and where.


Today should be a happy one.

Instead I feel a bit sad.

However when I look up, I see the sun,

and I know you smiling so I’m glad.
