Happy Birthday, Jon


Death did not take you away from us
but pushed you closer to our hearts

Death did not take your smile, your laugh
but carved them deeper in our minds



You ride the winds, you breathe the air
that swirls and eddies through our days
You whisper in our ears at night
with words we cannot hear



But know that you are with us
every moment that we live

You are the river in our souls
the sunlight drying all our tears
