Birthdays are a time for celebration

Not a time for tears

But what happens when the birthdays

No longer mark the years.

A birthday marks the moment

A spirit enters earthly life

To share its special love and joy

And learn from earthly strife.

Before a spirit comes to us

It knows when and how it must depart

It chose its path carefully

We are honored from the start.

The sadness we now feel on such a joyous day

Is longing for our loved one's touch

It's natural to feel this way.

For even though the birthdays

No longer mark a spirit's stay

Love continues on forever

To touch us everyday.

I hug my precious memories

Close to my heart

And honor my beloved spirit child

Who chose me from the start
