Happy Birthday by Jayjay4578 Distance Shouldn't MatterYou're so far away.
Thousands and thousands.
A sea separates us.
We could fall asleep on the telephone.
You'll listen to my soft breath and wish you were here.
We'd be that cutesy annoying couple standing in line poking each other.
While others roll their eyes and wish that we'd stop.
That's alright, I hated being the person watching others,
but that's only cause I knew I didn't have what they did.
Love, Care, and A guy like you.
I'm glad I found you.
A friend, and a dear love.
I'll never forget you, for you are somebody special.
Giggling and laughing.
We could have an excellent time.
Holding hands and eating deep fried oreos at the fair.
I'm just glad to have somebody like you.
