24th Birthday

It feels like a Sunday, though it’s not,
and your birthday’s closing in.
I sit as though the world had stopped
and think of only you.

You walk my dreams most every night,
but in good ways always now.
And if a small stray tear sneaks out
a smile wipes it dry.

I recall your goodness and your wit,
the music pouring from your soul;
how you gave away that hoodie
to your friend without a home.

These days when I remember you
it’s as a bright brief shooting star.
When I am gone to atom dust
we’ll meet again, I know.

    I am so sorry GIna – one of my grandsons died when he was four, he would be 27 now and I think of him every day

  • My sincere condolences, my dear friend – it’s a pain that no grandparent of parent should ever have to know. HUGS!
