First birthday you’ve missed

This is the first birthday you’ve missed
You, who were always there for mine,
Are now not here
For yours.

There will be other birthdays you will miss,
(You, who never forgot a birthday),
Until it will come to seem
Almost normal.

But never quite normal, because of one thing:
You, who are not here to celebrate,
Are still celebrated
And loved.
