Happy Birthday To Me

I went to get a birthday gift
Especially for me.
But couldn’t find a goddamn thing
So I just let it be.

I really don’t need anything
My house is full of stuff.
So why would I want something else
I truly have enough.

I won’t buy love or happiness
Although I know it’s done.
I won’t write checks for company
Or pay for some tramps’ fun.

One more year has come and gone
And it’s just like before.
Get up, get dressed and wonder why
I bother anymore.

It’s just another day for me
It’s been that way for years.
It’ll come and go like Mothers’ Day
No card…no call…no cheers.

Again I’ll tell myself the truth
And once again I’ll see.
It does no good to grieve for things
That aren’t and will not be.

But Michael’s in the bedroom
And Wentworth’s in the den.
And like I said “what we all need
Is our own mannequin!

I gave to me the bestest gift
Although it will be late.
I bought the latest season of
You guessed it…prison break!

On June the twenty-seventh
I’ll get my DVD.
In perfect cadence I will sing
Happy day to me!

  1. Happy birthday to you,
    I’m in a pickle too,
    with scarce friends and family
    you know it won’t do!

    I’ll come and make you smile,
    for one and every lonely mile,
    that each of us suffered,
    and we’ll forget for a while.

    love from me.

  3. I don’t congratulate others on their birthdays since I don’t celebrate birthdays. But I hope you’ll have good days ahead of you and that you’ll be surrounded by lovely friends who cares for you and show it.
