Thirty Years

Pz-avatarby alex sarich13 Jan 2021

Another birthday arrives
to celebrate your living years
and reminisce over memories
of yesteryear from child to teen
overflowing in unforgettable thoughts.
David, your name will always be
remembered within my lifetime,
as I share with you a scarred heart
with chapters of your short life
reminding that each heartbeat and
breath of air you took, isolated
just lying so still and peaceful.
these thirty birthday years
are very special to me
for your absence is sorely missed,
though one day we will meet again
that I promise.
