Another birthday

So much has happpened in the last year
Things that I didnt think of, or even fear
Events that no soul could do anything about
I've cried so many nights all alone
Never allowing others around to know I feel forlone
Inside I've had wanted to scream and shout
Im too soft inside, and really not tough
Regrets, I have many, I simply didnt do good enough
No wishes on this birthday did or will I make
For who I wish for is impossible and would be fake
The best present I had was from friends I've not met
Who sang happy birthday to me over the net
This simple thoughtful gift lightened my day
Because someone actually remembered that day
They touched me with kindness and their care
To send such love from all over there
