Birthday


I blow out the birthday candle
I ask for the impossible
Celebrating another year
I can't slow down father time
I'm still preparing for life
Until that job is mine
Until she says I do
The boy is becoming a man
But still scared on how I do
Downfalls will get in my way
I have to see them through
Listen to what they say
Knowing people will come and go
Knowing my mistakes I make
The corrections I must show
It's part of growing up
It's my birthday wish this year
Days go by so fast
Another birthday is near.
