I'm sorry I forgot your Birthday
I really have no excuse
But just in case I do it again
Next year, please drop me some clues.
There must have been a good excuse
as to how I forgot your day.
Wasn't there a hurricane?
Or at least force 4 gale that day.
Didn't we have 10 inches of snow
that prevented me getting out?
Or was it a tornado
throwing things about?
Obviously it was none of things
and to you I must apologise.
I admit to you I got it so wrong
I won't fill you with any lies!
I hope you had a smashing day
and I hope got spoilt rotten
please accept my birthday wishes
however late you got them!
I am pretty useless
and I'll admit that I forgot
But you know me pretty well
I'll forget more often than not.
Please don't think
that I don't care.
Because I forgot your birthday.
Because I wasn't there.
Without going into detail
times have been pretty tough.
We catch up soon and talk about it
I promise soon enough.
Right now, it's about you
and the birthday girl you are
I hope you've had the best one
the best one ever by far!
