A Not So Happy Birthday

images (3)
She woke up at midnight hoping someone will remember
But no messages arrived, so she just sobbed in the corner
Nobody else bothered so she just bought herself a cake
Today’s her birthday and sadly no one cared

Happy birthday dear you are now twenty-one
Unfortunately the people you love has come and gone
You’re living miles away and they won’t bother to visit
Don’t bother making wishes, it’s only for the weak

Happy birthday says the mirror back to you
Happy birthday dear, nobody around has a clue
The day will pass like it’s just another day
You’re no longer a child who can run around and play

Say goodbye to your wishlist, none of them will come true
Everyone else will be leaving, no one will be left but you
So blow out the candles and turn off your lamp light
Start counting sheep and tell yourself good night
