Dad’s Birthday

Back when Amputeagull soared in the sky

My grandmothers both gave me gifts

And I toddled across the classroom alone

Trying not to fill my happy face with red cards

But the bird dropped many seasons ago

And while I once shed tears beneath the face I could not please

Now I know how lucky I am to have you here

I have flipped through decks of heroes

But none will ever hold a candle to you

I wish your birthday

Is as wonderful for you

As you are to me.
