I woke up this morning
to the sound of nothing.
There  was no one around
No one I could see.

I was left alone, again
And what a day for this.
My 16th birthday, meaningless
I think that everyone has forgot.

But then, at 11:30 on the dot
my phone rang loud.
I check the caller I.D
and I couldn't believe my eyes.

The one I cared for whole heartedly
was calling me,
I didn't even know
that he knew I existed.

I picked up the phone
and he knew it was me.
I couldn't believe that he
recognised my voice.

He then said,
"I just wanted to call and wish
you a happy birthday, and I'll be
there shortly with your present."

This has to be the best
birthday I've ever had.

Lynn - I am echoing Suthern.

Funny thing - on my 16th birthday I was away from home and no one where I was remembered! It was awful...

Well done.

Lynn: Belated Happy Birthday..

HUGS

 Don't ask me where I'm going, just listen when I'm gone and far away you'll hear me singing softly to the dawn.
