Dena, a birthday wish
Deb, I hope you don't mind this but you know how much I loved Dena and the fact that she and I shared a birthday. Yesterday was a hard, hard day - my first birthday without my dad. And I'm sure it was too for Deb and Tom - Dena's first birthday without her.
Three score and ten are given to man,
But ours is a much briefer span.
So, though I give you all my heart,
The time will come when we must part.
But all around you, you will see,
Creatures that speak to you of me;
A tired horse, a hunted thing,
A sparrow with a broken wing ...
Pity - and help (I know you will)
And somehow, I will be with you still;
And I shall know, although I'm gone,
The love I gave you lingers on.
