Happy Birthday Joey!

Now in heaven...

Wondering if birthdays are celebrated there.
Maybe not.

Tough times for the loved ones left behind
Rough moments
Indescribable feelings
Unfathomable emotions

Should they cry
should they laugh
Should they celebrate
or not?

Ah, birthdays after death
such an irony!
Death comes after birth
But we don't want it too soon

Ah love, what great joy and sorrow you bring
Faith, great expectations within
Cry, no room for words
Tears, flow like a river

Sob, cry in quietness
Smile, even though the heart is breaking
Numb, emotions gone
Grace, that will give then strength

Ah, birthdays after death
You are not fun.
