Our table of four feels especially lonely tonight as we all sneak a glance at the empty chair that has not been used in two years.
Dust has gathered upon the chair and books have been piled on top of it. No one sits in the chair. It just does not feel right.
I try very hard not to cry. My mother has already sobbed during dinner and my sister and I looked at the ground with a pained look at hearing our mother's cries.
After dinner I walk out into the dark night. The air is cold, but I don't mind. My hands are in my pockets and my hood covers my saddened face.
I walk to my old elementary school park and sit on the old creaky swing. Tears fill my eyes and I try to hold them back. My hands begin to turn red from my tight grip on the chains.
The tears finally spill out of my eyes and I look up to the clear black sky. The stars are shining brightly and I almost feel a bit of relief looking up at the sky.
I smile slightly and begin to sing the "Happy Birthday" song to my dad. The stars of the sky looked like they were almost watching over me, just like my dad had watched over my family when he was alive.
"Dad, I miss you. Thank you for everything. I love you so much. Happy birthday."
I slowly rise from the swing and begin the chilly walk home. I again look up to the stars and smile to the clear night sky.
"Thank you Dad, for everything and happy birthday."
