Please God, make them remember thatToday is a special, birthday.Make them understand thatThe memories don’t go away.Bless them, with ears to hear and hearts that care.Enable them to listen while I share.Shelter them that they may never know my pain.Help them to help me know that my child’s life was not in vain.Help them to remember, Lord that I wishThat my child was hereSo we could still celebrate.To understand that I stillFeel the nearness of my child.To see beyond my smile and theWords. “I’m okay.”Please God, just let one remember todayIs a special birthday!
