A Birthday Tribute To A Friend ~ Gone But Never Forgotten

Rating: 5.0

I'm sitting and I'm thinking
every moment of today
missing you my friend
only wishing I could say
Happy Birthday once again
as I had for many years
but now its sent to Heaven
while I cry so many tears

You were a man of many talents
you could draw anyone with ease
you created and the end result
was a gift so sure to please

You aimed for true perfection
anything less just would not do
any mistakes would need correction
needed or not, but that was you.

So many years of fun times
I can not believe they now are gone
I miss you more than words can say
thought your legacy still lives on

I miss your smile I miss your ways
a heart of gold beneath the haze
I hope you know how thankful
I was to have you there for me
always opening your home and heart
a true friend you would always be

So today let me say Happy Birthday
with sadness but little regret
to let you know I miss what was
one of the greatest guys I ever met.
