I didn't think it would be hard
To write you a birthday lyric.
But then I remembered one small thing –
That I can't rhyme for shit.
So please excuse my lame attempt
At trying to make you giggle
It's hard to write for someone so special,
To "crush every niggle".
In all the years that we've been friends
Not once did I wish the opposite.
Always there when I needed you,
You stuck through all my shit.
You're wonderfully creative -
My favourite poet is you!
So skilled at writing in rhyming line,
But other things too…
Like cooking and photography
But let's not forget about you
Your beautiful smile lights up a room,
As only you can do.
You've always made me feel special,
Like there's something better out there.
I can only hope I've done you the same,
Provided you with the same care.
I know I've caused you pain in the past
And for that I'm truly sorry.
But I'm sure I will redeem myself,
So you need not worry
One thing you can be sure of
Is that I won't run away.
Whatever you can thr
