Birthdays are an annual
A way of saying things we ought to say.
Relatively few can sing their love
Unless they do it on some special day.
Hearts are shy, and words of little use.
But now I want to tell you that I
Open up my heart and say the things
Siblings seldom say to one another
'Cause of the embarrassment it brings.
How lucky, then, that I can be here with you!
