I bask in joy thinking of you with delight seeping through the corners of my eyes into a drought heart, the omission of you from my thoughts only makes life intolerable. With every present moment is the repetition of what I've and shared and lived with you, I can only say happy birthday my love.
"Time has marched onward slowly as memories persist,
Years seem as only months; months seem as only days,
It has been so long, yet, seems as yesterday, since I held you in my arms,
An infinitely longer time since I kissed your sweet lips,
Another Fourth of July has passed with explosions in the air,
With my heart still exploding with hauntingly memories of us,
Once long, long ago we were inseparable, passionate lovers
I could not keep my eyes off of you; fearing that you would disappear,
The day which I hold most sacred is upon me, again,
A date which was written in the stars; the day that you were born,
The most beautiful day I have ever known in this life,
That special day the Heavens introduced you into our world,
Not knowing that it would be you that I would fall madly in love with,
And in love with you I had fallen as I had never known love before!
I do not know where you are today nor if you are doing well or not,
I hope that you have found the happiness and life I could not give you,
In this poem I send you all my best wishes and love which lingers in me,
Sending this ode to you telepathically: I know that your soul has received it:
Happy Birthday, my love! No matter how far you are from me;
No matter how long ago last we were together; time and space are meaningless,
Happy Birthday, to you my darling! Wherever you may be,
But today on your special day your spirit is with me, evermore,
Happy Birthday, to you my sweetness! I do not know where you are today,
May the Great Powers of the universe bless you; may they keep you warm,
Happy Birthday, my love! A kiss from my lips to your lips I send you,
The same one we kissed innumerable times when we were one,
Happy Birthday, my love! I am sending to you all the love in my heart,
A great love that has never died for a true love never ever dies,
Happy Birthday, to you my love! I am here alone celebrating my agonies,
Wishes things were another way; wishing your were with me, again, to stay,
Happy Birthday, my love! I remember you on your day with tenderness,
With all the love that still dwells in my heart for you,
Happy Birthday, to you my love! Memories of love abound,
Happy Birthday, to you my darling! I miss you eternally,
Happy Birthday, to you my love! I hope you remember me, today,
Happy Birthday, to you my sweetness! Remembering our great romance,
Happy Birthday, to you my love! Why did I have to lose you?
Happy Birthday, my love! Why have the Heavens punished me so immensely?
Happy Birthday, to you my love! Who knows where you dwell, today?
Happy Birthday, to you my love! Who knows if you are happy or sad, today?
Happy Birthday, my love! I do not know where you are, today?
Happy Birthday, my darling! Do you ever remember me?
Happy Birthday, my love!
Wherever you may be."
