On Your Birthday

No cake or candles here today

Or presents for you to open

Just love from friends and family who want to say

Happy Birthday, and that we're hoping

Somehow you can see and know

That we have not forgotten you

That we still remember, even though

You've departed from our view

And if you see us here below

And wonder why we care

It's just because we want to show

That a part of you is still here

You live within each memory's heart

And so you remain though we're apart
