I dropped a tear in the ocean...when they find it...that's when I'll stop remembering you!

I PRAYED FOR YOU TODAY

I know it seems you are all alone
No one really to care
With such a heavy burden
that you alone must bear.
I may not know just what to say
nor exactly, what to do.
But, may you be assured to know
I am praying just for you.
So even though it seems that
many storm clouds fill your day,
I know the Lord has heard our prayer
and help is on its way.

Happy Birthday
I thought of you today

2005

Okay I thought about you today, was wondering how 50 felt. Happy Birthday Blue Eyes.

2004

try as I might, try as I may I could not forget the significance of the day
temptation to say hi, a greeting a birthday, to question why
love in my heart as strong as ever, wondering, wishing, knowing forever
from a brown jar upon my desk, a crumpled piece of paper still echoes the words best
I Love You and probably always will. Happy Birthday HDW

2003

today is a special day
a friend of mine was given life
forty some years ago
happy birthday my friend

2002

is it over and are you gone
does this day mark a new year
and a new beginning with a new start on the old life
where am I in the picture,
have I been erased or just stored for when that time comes again?

2001

I thought a thought of you
and I thought of what this new year would bring
and I thought of what you would like
and I thought of your birthday candles burning bright
and I thought of your gift
and I thought a thought of you

Ah, summer, what power you have to make us suffer and like it.

1999

I missed the smile you bring to me, with your words of wisdom and mirth, I missed your words upon my screen as though a hidden hand had hidden me from re-birth. I missed the dialog, and the words, Like a rainy day where there is no song from the birds. I look into the darkness and wonder where, not knowing who else is there. or even if you care. Why do I do this to me, I certainly can see, but yet I do and it's all because of you.
