Birthday Memorial

Today is your birthday.


365 days have passed since the last one…

so many of those filled with thoughts of you…memories…laughs…reflections.

somehow my body knew before my brain did.

trying to catch my breath in between the violent sobs…

I don’t understand what is happening.

until I am told what day it is.

pain stabs me in the chest

when I realize how much I still miss you…

and will continue to do so…

until next year’s birthday.

and the one after that.

one day my pain will end

and be replaced with joy.

joy of seeing you and joy of no more tears.

until we meet again my sweet uncle.
