Your birthday walked
Right past me
I heard its footsteps
Its fresh scent in the air
And was it sweet
But I dared not embrace it
I saw it pass, waved goodbye
No flowers today
No card, no message no call
While you waited
I stood in fear and let it slip
So you would stay young
If only for one more year
Grow not old
Let’s stop the clock
And cheat on time
Another birthday gone
I turned my back
Because in my heart
I’ll keep you young.
