Dad's Birthday

Today is your birthday,
you would have been ninety-five this year.
Birthdays are supposed to be days of celebration,
not a day of tears.
Granny would have been over to eat,
but she lies in a grave asleep.
But my years full of memories of you,
are things I hold so deep.
I would have gotten you socks,
or some other silly thing.
You reside in Heaven. .
but I must say you earned your wings.
