Loss of a Friend Poem

Remembering The Birthday Of A Friend Who Passed Away

My friend had a fatal accident and died on the spot five years ago. I know it's a long time, but it still feels like yesterday. This poem serves as a remembrance and celebration of her birthday and a way of praying she never forgets me too.

Birthdays In Heaven

I remember the first day we met.
You were all smiles, always happy.
This I must say is the saddest birthday yet
Because I still haven't learned to forget.

Here I am, sitting all alone,
Not knowing what to do or what to say,
Calling every day, hoping you'll pick your phone
Because I can't believe you left this way.

You were a damsel, an angel, a shining light,
A sun at noon and a star at night,
A mirror of beauty, a golden ray,
And again, here comes your birthday.

Here is to wishing you a happy birthday, dear.
I wish and hope that you will hear
My heart is aching from trying to comprehend
How a being so sweet can have a tragic end.

I hope at least you'll get a birthday card.
Knowing you're gone still makes me sad.
Again, happy birthday to a darling friend.
I'll love you forever till the world's end.

I'll really like a sign from God
So that I'll know you can see this word for word,
So please consider this my special way
Of wishing you a happy, happy birthday.
