Birthday Forgot - Poem by Randy McClave

It was my birthday and my immediate family forgot
No wishes were given to me, and no presents bought.
There was no birthday cake or ice-cream nowhere for me to eat
And for me looking for non-existence presents, was my son's greatest treat.
It was that one time of the year when my birthday had arrived
No one seemed happy or pleased, that another year I had survived.
Though my neighbors and my friends congratulated me on my one special day
But, for my son and his fiancee, not one birthday wish to me did they say.
When it is my son's birthday, it is the greatest day of my life
It was the greatest gift that was given to me by my ex-lovely wife.
And every year when it comes around for my son's birthday, it I happily celebrate
But, for my own birthday my son doesn't care or even wants to participate.
Happy Birthday he will always sing to his other family members and friends
But, birthday wishes or gifts to me, he or his fiancee never sends.
