A Heavenly Birthday

A funeral poem for comfort during unsettling times

A Heavenly Birthday

You walk beside me every day.

You’re here in all I do and say.

At night I close my eyes and pray

To someone who took you away.

My thoughts are all in disarray.

My tears are public, on display.

I wish that you were here today,

That you could take my pain away.

Why do I play this game I play?

Pretend to all that I’m okay?

This will sound selfish, some will say,

But I wish you hadn’t gone away.

I don’t go out, got feet of clay.

I know you’re here so want to stay.

I wish I could relive that day.

I would have washed your pain away.

Memories like a DVD play,

Memories of that awful day.

So much that I wanted to say

That day someone took you away.

My thoughts don’t move; they never may,

Won’t even meet me half the way,

So till we meet on God’s highway,

I’ll sit and dream my life away.

I send my love to heaven today,

Not just because it’s your birthday.

I’ll send you love every day

Until my life has passed away.
