Birthdays, I forget.
Memories, I treasure.
True friends, I keep.
Loved ones, I miss.
Your letters were my inspiration.
Your words, my light. Your ways, my example.
The leaves fall on the earth where your ashes blend.
The cold wind saddens me but the thought of you lifts me.
I miss you Lo. Wish I could talk to you once more. Sadly that I could no longer do.
The world is one heart less without you. But the angels now rejoice with you.
Happy birthday Lo. I know you are happy wherever you are.
Hope your happiness touches me the way the speck in the air sticks to me.
